“For more than 20 years, Pierre has been a valuable asset to Monsanto and our finance organization,” said Hugh Grant, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Monsanto. “Pierre understands our business, has proven financial expertise, and applies that to executing on our strategic vision. His leadership will provide a key anchor as Monsanto focuses on the operational implementation that will drive the growth in this company over the long term.”
