Dow Agrosciences Names New IVM Product and Marketing Communications Managers

Scott Wright has been named product manager and Natalie Ciambrone will assume the new role of marketing communications manager for Dow AgroSciences’ integrated vegetation management (IVM) business.

Wright had been a sales specialist with Dow AgroSciences in the eastern vegetation management district, serving the states of Mississippi and Arkansas.

He went on to graduate from Mississippi State University with a bachelor’s degree in golf and sports turf management and a master’s in weed science.

Before joining Dow AgroSciences, Wright was a research associate at Mississippi State University working extensively with nationally renowned weed science experts Drs. Euel Coats and John Byrd. He also collaborated closely with the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) to build herbicide spray programs and train applicators. Wright is a past board member and president of the Mississippi Vegetation Management Association.

Ciambrone previously was in the Commercial Leadership Development Program supporting the Mycogen Seeds business for Dow AgroSciences. In her new position, she will assist in the development of marketing and communications plans and be responsible for implementing marketing communications tactics.

Ciambrone joined Dow AgroSciences in June 2014 as a U.S. commercial project manager. Prior to joining Dow AgroSciences, she worked in marketing and sales operations at a venture-backed software company. She earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from DePauw University and completed her Master of Business Administration with a concentration in marketing in 2015 at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business.
