Certis Biologicals Expands International Personnel to Answer Rising Global Demand
To meet the rising demand for biological-based crop protection products, Certis Biologicals today announced new additions to its headquarters team. Tarang Srivastava begins immediately as Head of International Business, responsible for business strategy and financial objectives in international markets and working with distribution partners, external business partners and internal teams to expand biologicals globally. Srivastava’s focus will lay in providing solutions to growers in European markets. Srivastava formally worked on Bharat Certis Insecticide Limited for parent company Mitsui & Co. and brings extensive experience in establishing global positions to the new role.
Additionally, Certis Biologicals welcomes Moto Mitani to the International Business Team. Mitani will lead the Certis teams for Asia and Africa as well as supporting Certis Biologicals’ Specialty Chemical Sales division. Mitani joins from Mitsui AgriScience where he served as Business Manager responsible for international sales.
Amanda Eade joins the Global Marketing Team as Global Portfolio Manager for Bioinsecticides and Bioherbicides, assessing market capacity for Certis’ proven portfolio of bio-based insecticide and herbicide solutions, including Bt portfolio products, Firefighter©, Requiem Prime© and Homeplate©. Eade brings extensive experience from posts with Open Book Extracts as Operations Manager, BASF as portfolio manager and Dow Agrisciences as sales representative.
“Currently, Certis Biologicals distributes bio-based solutions in more than 50 countries worldwide and we see a growing need in areas where synthetic chemistries are growing scarce and regulations are high,” says Amy O’Shea, President and CEO. “We want to ensure that every grower, no matter where they are located, has access to our portfolio and we believe these additions to our staff will be key to achieving that goal.”
The additions of Srivastava, Mitani and Eade come in the wake of Certis Biologicals’ announcement that Rob Gibson joined as Global Product Manager and Ryutaro Matsuhashi, VP of International Business, had expanded his role within the biologicals leader to focus on growth in Latin America. In that capacity, Matsuhashi has seen success in expanding the company’s portfolio in Brazil.
“We are proud to be headquartered in the U.S., but Certis Biologicals is a true global distributor of biologicals,” says O’Shea. “We are investing in the talent and expertise needed to ensure that we can be the full-line provider of biologicals to all growers and distributors.”
Currently, Certis Biologicals innovates across six technology platforms, including bacteria-based technologies, fungi-based products, virus technologies, bacteriophage technologies, biochemicals and need-seed extracts. The company distributes nearly 40 integrated biological crop protection solutions to growers in more than 50 countries. Certis’ robust research and development pipeline is planning numerous new products and formulations coming to market over the next 3-5 years.

Flawed: Cayman Finance Challenges Credibility Of Tax Justice Network’s Biannual Financial Secrecy Index22.9.2021 09:10:00 CEST | Press release
Cayman Finance has today released a new study that critically assesses the methodology and data used to assess the Cayman Islands in Tax Justice Network’s (TJN) ‘Financial Secrecy Index’ (FSI). Significant flaws in TJN’s choice of data and scoring have rendered the 2020 report an unreliable source for accurate information about the Cayman Islands financial services industry. Future TJN reports’ will also lack credibility without critical changes in the application of their own methodology – and Cayman Finance will continue to scrutinise and analyse future editions to ensure continued accountability. Ahead of the anticipated publication of the other TJN reports this fall, Cayman Finance commissioned the review to analyse the calculations of the previous report published in 2020, which incorrectly placed the Cayman Islands first globally in its secrecy ranking. This analysis, by accomplished economist Julian Morris, identified significant flaws in how TJN applied its own original methodo
