NGS Global Launches Agribusiness Practice

San Francisco, CA, April 1, 2016 – NGS Global announced today that the firm will officially begin offering its high-touch executive recruitment services to organizations in the Agribusiness field. Providing clients with a focused practice, supported by our vast global experience in the Agribusiness sector, will allow NGS Global to use our specific expertise and experience in this field to create the best outcome for our clients.

Agribusinesses worldwide face a host of challenges as they navigate the complicated job of feeding the growing world population. Our entry into the industry will allow these organizations to focus on their mission by alleviating the task of finding well-rounded executives with business, science, and political skills in addition to agriculture skills.

The newly established practice will consist of Melissa Oszustowicz in the Americas, Richard Crux in Europe, Julian Buckeridge in Asia, and Grant Nichol in Australia. We are confident that the background, skills, and expertise these partners bring to our Agribusiness Practice will allow NGS Global to service these important organizations locally and globally and emerge as a competitive player in this area.

“I’m excited to be leading the charge into Agribusiness for NGS Global in the Americas,” said Melissa Oszustowicz, Partner and Agribusiness Practice Lead, NGS Global Americas. “As a former Chief Executive Officer for an agricultural risk management company serving private and public clients in the U.S. mainland and Pacific Rim, I have a thorough understanding of what it takes to successfully operate an Agribusiness.”

“Our entry into this dynamic industry was an easy decision since so many of our partners have experience in both the operations and executive recruitment side of Agribusiness,” said David Nosal, Chairman and Managing Partner, NGS Global. “We believe this is a differentiator for NGS Global and will provide even more value to our clients.”
