CHICAGO, Ill. – Nufarm announces that Brendan Deck has been asked to move into the role of regional general manager, Nufarm North America.

Deck replaces Darryl Matthews, who had held the position since 2010.

Deck most recently headed up Nufarm’s Crop Care business in Australia. He has deep and broad management experience and brings a customer focus to the business. “I’m excited by the challenge of heading up Nufarm’s North American operations,” he says. “We have an exciting portfolio of innovative products and a strong, capable team to bring them to market. Focusing on the customer and our relationship with them will be a key focus for us moving forward.”

Deck will be transitioning into his new role and will begin interacting with the North American team as he works to complete all requirements related to his relocation to the Chicago area from his current home in Brisbane, Australia.
