Corteva’s New CEO: Chuck Magro

Earlier in 2021, Jim Collins announced he was going to retire from Corteva at the end of the year, and today, the company announced his successor. Chuck Magro (most recently CEO at Nutrien) will be Corteva’s CEO effective Nov. 1, 2021.
The company says Collins will work with Magro to assure a smooth transition.
In Corteva’s announcement, Greg Page, Independent Chairman of Corteva, said, “Chuck has an extensive, proven track record driving profitable growth through innovation and execution in the agriculture industry. During nearly a decade of strong leadership at Nutrien and its predecessor Agrium, Chuck led the creation and integration of the world’s largest crop inputs, services, and solutions company and established a culture with a clear commitment to operational excellence and advancing sustainable agriculture solutions. Our Board is confident that he is the right leader to carry our strong momentum forward and create significant near- and long-term shareholder value.”
