Chris Coombs
President and CEO, New Product Development

A 30 year veteran of the Ag Chemical Industry, Chris entered the industry in sales and advanced to marketing, management and executive roles within various companies. Within the DuPont Company, he held roles of sales in N. AL and the MS Delta and then advancing to the DuPont worldwide headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. In Delaware, Chris was head Business Manager of the $150M U.S. Cotton Products Business Group. During this extended time in Delaware he also led the U.S. Fungicide Business, the $300M Fungicide Global Supply Chain, the U.S. Insecticide Business and the DuPont Cotton Leadership Program.

In the early 1990’s, Chris was recruited by BASF Corporation in Raleigh, North Carolina, to head their marketing group. The primary focus was to build the platform to launch their up and coming fungicide business. He participated in many international venues across Europe, Asia and South America.

He relocated to the MidSouth to transition and manage BASF’s sales and technical service business from Mississippi to California. In 2000 he entered the family L.P Gas business as V.P. Here he worked to improve upon a 40 year system of demonstrated success. He remains active within this business today. In 2002 he worked with Agtrol Inc. to further develop their sales and marketing structure to proceed to a divesture. In this timing the company was sold to Nufarm LTD of Australia. Here, he led the transition and development of Nufarm’s new entry into the U. S. market. He led the sales and marketing effort to position Nufarm as a leading generic supplier during this timing.

Prior to founding AgSource, Chris was the Vice-President of North America for AgraQuest Inc., a biotech company based in CA. He developed the sales, technical services and marketing groups which today continues toward the platform and strategy that was created that has transitioned the company from a non-existent entity to a viable company with a presence in the U.S. agriculture market.

Chris is a graduate of Mississippi State University with separate degrees in Business and Economics. He also attended the DuPont Company’s Corporate Promotable Training Program in conjunction with the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. Today, Chris, and his wife Tanya, live in their home state of Mississippi and he is the sixth generation of one of North Mississippi’s pioneering families which established roots in the state over 173 years ago.
