According to a news release, Moreno brings more than 25 years’ experience in sales, marketing, research and agricultural product development to the role. In his role with Vestaron, Moreno will play a key role in delivering revolutionary peptide-based Spear technology to growers in the region for protection of high-value crops including berries, vegetables, corn, cotton, peanuts and pecans.

“Jorge will be an excellent addition to the Vestaron team as we grow our footprint in this important market,” said Ben Cicora, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Vestaron. “His expertise in agriculture and understanding of this unique growing region are invaluable assets to our team.”

This new hire comes on the heels of Vestaron’s Series B-1 funding announcement as yet another indicator of growth and continued innovation for the company.

Vestaron is a peptide-based revolution in crop protection. Vestaron has earned global recognition for its work, including the inaugural 2015 Bernard Blum Award for novel biocontrol solutions, a 2020 THRIVE Top 50 Growth-Stage honoree, and the prestigious Green Chemistry Challenge Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute in 2020.
