All Change at Corteva AgriScience

Barbara Checchi takes over from Joanne George as Australia business manager for Sentricon at Corteva AgriScience.


After 29 years’ commitment to the Sentricon brand, Joanne George has announced her retirement from Corteva Agriscience. Ms George will be a familiar name for those working in termite management as she has been a trusted contact for technical support for Sentricon for many years, first in her role with Dow AgroSciences and later with Corteva.

Following Ms George’s retirement, Barbara Checchi has now stepped into the role of business manager for Sentricon and is based at the Chatswood office in Sydney. Ms Checchi has been with Corteva Agriscience for seven years, initially in Crop Protection, looking after the Agency product range as part of the Customer Service team.

“I am delighted to take on the role of business manager from Jo, who has been an incredible source of information and support for Australian pest managers for many years. I would like to thank her for all that she has achieved in her time with the Sentricon brand,” said Ms Checchi.

“As I have assumed Jo’s mobile number, customers can continue to call the usual number for technical support or by email.

“I look forward to getting out and meeting with our customers over the coming months and forging new relationships.”
