Two AGCOexecutives killed in plane crash

TWO of AGCOs top executives were among the victims of last Fridays business jet crash at Birmingham International airport.

John Shumejda, president and chief executive officer, was one of the management buy-out team that created AGCO in the early 1990s. Ed Swingle was senior vice-president, sales and marketing.

They were returning to the US after visiting AGCOs European head office in Coventry when the jet crashed on take-off. &#42
