Syngenta Announces Eric Boeck as New Head of North America Seeds


As part of ongoing leadership changes, on June 23, Syngenta announced Eric Boeck would be taking over as regional director of North America Seeds.

Boeck served as head of marketing for Syngenta Seeds in North America in his most recent position. He joined the company in 2018, bringing more than 20 years of agribusiness experience with him from his past roles in sales, marketing and digital agriculture at DuPont Pioneer/Corteva Agriscience. Since then, he has been a key part of the Syngenta Seeds business.

Boeck has held roles across the U.S. corn belt — including in Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois. He earned a bachelor’s degree in animal science and dairy science from Iowa State University.

“It’s not possible to execute the type of turnaround we saw in our seeds business without focused, committed leadership across the board, and the continuity shown by these leadership moves is further evidence of that,” said Justin Wolfe, newly appointed president of Global Seeds at Syngenta, in a release from Syngenta. “Eric has been an integral part of ensuring we bring a farmer-centric approach to everything we do, and I’m excited for his continued leadership in a market of critical importance.”

Boeck’s new role will begin on July 1, 2022.
