TEL-AVIV, ISRAEL/SCHAFFHAUSEN, SWITZERLAND: The Makhteshim Agan Group (MAI), the world leader in branded off-patent crop protection solutions, has two new appointments in the European region. Jose Luis Collar is appointed as Head of Portfolio Management Europe. In his new position, Collar will focus on managing and harmonizing MAI’s product portfolio in Europe, with a special focus on Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. He will report to Anders Harfstrand, CEO, MAI’s Europe Region, and will work closely with the regional, regulatory, development and products & marketing groups.
