Warren holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from East Carolina University and a master’s in environmental sciences and engineering from the University of North Carolina.

“I am gratified to be a part of such an elite and dynamic team,” Warren said. “In just a few short years, their growth has been impressive. I look forward to helping them further their short- and long-term goals.”

Warren comes from a nine-year tenure at Arysta LifeScience where he worked as head of Supply Chain for North America, Australia and New Zealand. Prior to then, he was strategic sourcing lead. He previously held director positions at Reichhold and Ashland Chemical Co.

“In our search for people to fill these two critical positions, we didn’t focus only on operational nuts and bolts,” said Anuvia CEO Amy Yoder. “We wanted leaders with intimate knowledge of manufacturing and operational processes who have the passion to push for excellence and the ability to build teams to help us reach out business objectives. We found all of these qualities in Chris and Don.”
