Christophe Dumont heads Bayer Crop Science Commercial Operations for Latin America (excl. Brazil) based in Buenos Aires since July 2016.

Prior to this, he was Head of Bayer Crop Science for Central Europe as well as Bayer corporate president for the same sub-region. Graduated as an Agronomic Engineer from E.N.S.H. Versailles, France in 1989, he has worked for 26 years in the crop protection and seeds industry, going through various international assignments in Europe and Latin America (10 countries overall).

His experience ranges from sales, marketing, business development, global strategy, M&A projects to general management.
