In memory of Alejandro Aruffo
1959 – 2013
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Dr Alejandro Aruffo, Head of Research & Development and a member of the Syngenta Executive Committee.
Having completed his studies at the University of Washington and Harvard, Dr Aruffo pursued a highly successful career in pharmaceutical research at Bristol-Myers Squibb and Abbott. On joining Syngenta in 2008, Dr Aruffo assumed global responsibility for the company’s combined chemical and biological research and development. With his broad leadership experience and advanced analytical and strategic capabilities, he made an enduring contribution to strengthening innovation at Syngenta. The Board, the Executive Committee and employees owe a lasting debt of gratitude to Dr Aruffo. We have lost a remarkable personality and a good friend.
We honor the memory of Dr Aruffo, and our heartfelt sympathy goes to his wife Linda and his two children.
