FMC Corp. elected Darren Dillenbeck, current president of FMC U.S.A., as the vice president and president of FMC North America. The company also appointed Renato Guimarães as vice president and president of FMC Latin America.

Dillenbeck joined FMC in 2018 and led the company’s Canadian business until being named president of FMC U.S.A. in 2022. He has more than 25 years of experience in the agricultural industry, including commercial leadership roles of increasing responsibility at Corteva Agriscience (formerly Dow AgroSciences). He will also join the FMC operating committee.

“Darren is an exceptional commercial leader who has delivered strong results in the U.S. and Canada,” said Mark Douglas, president and CEO of FMC. “In recent years, FMC has accelerated the introduction of new products in North America and we expect this trend to continue as we prepare to launch several technologies in the coming years, including new active ingredients, new biological products and applications for precision agriculture. Darren will play an instrumental role leading the region on this exciting journey.”

According to the company, FMC has grown its market share and has successfully introduced several new products in the U.S. and Canada under Dillenbeck’s leadership.

Guimarães brings more than three decades of agribusiness experience to his new role leading FMC’s Latin America region. He most recently served as CEO of a large crop protection retailer in Brazil. He has also held sales and marketing leadership roles for more than two decades in Brazil at Syngenta (formerly Sandoz and Novartis).

“Renato is a highly respected leader in the crop protection industry in Brazil and throughout the region,” Douglas said. “With extensive experience across the value chain, including at tier-one crop protection companies, retailers and operating his own farm, he has a comprehensive view of agriculture and the opportunities in crop protection today and in the future.”

Guimarães graduated as an agronomist from the School of Agriculture of Lavras in Brazil and earned his MBA from Fundação Dom Cabral. He will be based at the company’s Latin America regional headquarters in Campinas, Brazil. Guimarães will also join the FMC operating committee.
