:: AGRISUS NEW BOARD OF TRUSTEES
SECRETARY - AGRISUS NEW BOARD OF TRUSTEES
AGRISUS FOUNDATION ELECTS NEW TRUSTEES
The election complied with the guidelines set out in the 2009 Working Plan, which proposes an examination of the Articles, principally on the matter of ensuring that the Trustees represent Brazil's agricultural and agronomic community. Based on the fact that the Foundation is an autonomous entity with a solid reputation, the goal was to attract people from academia, research and farming concerned about soil fertility as a basic aspect of sustainable agriculture, in order to manage the organization. The Agrisus Foundation is therefore taking an important step towards ensuring continued operations and a brighter future, by entrusting its management to a select group of trustees who are inspired by the ideals and entrepreneurship of Luiz de Queiroz and who share the spirit of the school that bears his name. The induction ceremony has been scheduled for April 8, at the headquarters of the Luiz de Queiroz Agricultural Study Foundation, (FEALQ), in Piracicaba (SP). Below are the new members of the Board of Trustees: -José Octávio Machado Menten (Agronomist and professor of the Phytopathology and Nematology Dept. at ESALQ); -Ricardo Shirota (Agronomist and professor of the Economics, Management and Sociology Department at ESALQ); - Fernando Penteado Cardoso Filho (Agronomist, cofounder of Agrisus, former president of Manah S.A., president of Connan S.A-Mineral Licks and a cattle farmer); -José Maria de Arruda Mendes Filho (Forestry Engineer, director of Votorantin Celulose e Papel S/A); - Ricardo Caiuby de Faria (Agronomist, director of Sucral – Soluções em Açúcar, Etanol e Cogeração; -Siu Mui Tsai (Agronomist, professor and researcher at CENA – Center for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture, an ESALQ organization); - Wilson Roberto Soares Mattos (Agronomist, Professor of the Zootechnica Dept. at ESALQ).
