Syngenta recently appointed Todd Loecke as head of key accounts, a newly created position within the company, and Troy Rippy as Midwest district sales manager.

In his new role, Loecke will manage six key account managers across the turf, ornamentals, professional pest management and consumer businesses.

After graduating from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s in agricultural studies, Loecke started his career in 1991 with a Syngenta legacy company as a crop protection territory manager. He began with Syngenta Professional Solutions in 1998 as a territory manager. In 2007, Loecke became the Midwest district sales manager for turf and ornamentals, a position he held until he began his new role this year.

“For over 15 years, Todd has demonstrated his leadership skills and passion for our industry,” Dave Ravel, head of sales for Syngenta Professional Solutions, said. “His experience and excellent communication skills have gained the respect of his team, our customers and industry partners.”

Rippy was appointed the new Midwest district sales manager within the turf and ornamentals businesses. He will be leading a team of nine territory managers covering the central region of the U.S.

Rippy received his bachelor’s in marketing from Trine University. Prior to joining Syngenta, he served as a golf course superintendent at Eagle Glen Golf Course and worked with Simplot as a distributor sales representative. Rippy then joined Syngenta in 2006 as a territory manager in Indiana and Northwest Ohio.

“With Troy’s previous experience as a superintendent, distributor sales representative and Syngenta territory manager, we’re excited to elevate him into this new role,” said Ravel. “We’re confident his robust experience and strong customer relationships will be a great foundation for him as the Midwest district sales manager.”
