Syngenta welcomes a new Senior Sales Manager to its Professional Solutions team.


The team at Syngenta Professional Solutions has welcomed David Marrs to the role of senior sales manager for the PPM business. Mr Marrs is based in Brisbane and his role will cover the Professional Pest Management portfolio across Australia and New Zealand.

“We are thrilled to have someone of David’s calibre join our team,” said Carole Cast, business manager, Syngenta Consumer and PPM, ANZ. “David obtained a Masters of Business Administration at James Cook University and brings over 30 years’ experience in sales and operations management as well as current market knowledge of pest control and fumigation.”

Mr Marrs started out as a pest technician back in 1989 within the family business, Exopest, based in Brisbane. He worked in operations and sales and completed his Certificate IV in Pest Management. When the business was acquired by Campbell Brothers in 2003, he worked with them as a branch manager.

Acquisition by Rentokil four years later saw Mr Marrs take on increasing responsibilities, later becoming business manager for Rentokil in Southeast QLD. Over the years he has held a variety of positions within Rentokil, his most recent position being national fumigation manager.

Mr Marrs is excited to bring his vast experience to his new role with Syngenta, saying, “I look forward to being able to travel across Australia and New Zealand to support Syngenta customers with our range of quality Professional Pest Management products.”
