Vestaron Corporation, the leading producer of peptide-based bio-pesticides, is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Fox as its first vice president of sustainability. In this role, Fox will lead the company’s sustainability strategy and initiatives, aimed at promoting sustainable agriculture and protecting biodiversity. Fox will focus on defining and developing a clear data set around key metrics as well as outreach to sustainability-focused landowners, operators and downstream stakeholders such as grocery and branded food companies.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sarah to the Vestaron team,” said Anna Rath, CEO of Vestaron. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will enable us to promote our messages of sustainability and biodiversity as well as continue to hold ourselves accountable to these core values.”
Vestaron’s mission is to lead a revolution in agriculture, providing products that have the same efficacy as traditional chemical pesticides but with the safety and environmental attributes of biologic molecules.
“I’m extremely honored to join the Vestaron team as the vice president of sustainability,” said Fox. “I am thrilled to help further expand the vision and measurement of Vestaron’s sustainability and ESG strategy while continuing to share unique solutions to growers provided by nature-based products for sustainable agriculture.”
Fox brings over 25 years of extensive experience in sustainability and corporate responsibility, most recently coming from a leadership position at Nutrien Ag Solutions as their global director of strategic partnerships and strategy. She holds a master’s degree in atmospheric science and ecology from the University of Albany and a bachelor’s degree from Trinity University in Washington, DC.
