Douglas Dyas

Job title:
National Account Manager
Responsibilities:
I have overall responsibility for the management of ADAMA’s business with two large national distribution accounts. On a seasonal basis, this involves achieving turnover targets and Gross Margins through an agreed product mix. This seasonal aspiration can only be met by understanding the needs of the customer and providing the right solutions wherever possible to meet those needs. This includes agreeing financial positions but also ensuring sufficient technical content is available for example to ensure full confidence in our products. To do this I will regularly meet with various departments of the customers business – often in a traditional meeting format at an office, but also out in the field, and all over the country.
Why I love working at ADAMA:
ADAMA is a very dynamic company. I strongly believe this is a necessary trait in what has become a fast changing sector in an increasingly evolving industry. One of the ADAMA ‘values’ is ‘getting it done’. This really does seem to be upheld and I have found that decisions can be made and outcomes implemented quickly, which
is far better for the customer. I have been given excellent guidance in the commercial role which was new to me when I joined - I came from a predominately technical background in R&D yet I have found that my previous experience is valued and thoughts and ideas are always acknowledged amongst the wider organisation. I enjoy liaising with other team members in technical, finance and logistics departments etc and the wealth of expertise available ensures that I can bring everything together to achieve the best experience for the customer.

Regional Agronomy Manager (Central)
Responsibilities:
In season technical support for all key stakeholders across my region which includes the West Midlands, East Midlands, Yorkshire and Ireland.

In addition, delivery of both Spring and Autumn campaigns via presentations to distribution and fee paid sectors is a key aspect of the role. Other aspects include regional trial management and presence at agricultural events throughout the year.
My favourite aspect of my job:
Being part of the wider agricultural industry and being in front of agronomists with key messages and new approaches to best utilise the ADAMA portfolio.

Responsibilities:
I lead one of the UK Crop Teams, which involves co-ordinating and integrating inputs from different aspects of the business - from marketing to commercial, technical, regulatory and stewardship - to build and develop our portfolio and deliver our strategic business aims.
Why I love working at ADAMA:
In a word – the people. ADAMA is a great team, hard-working and focused, with talented and empowered people. We also like a challenge or two, which the business and the industry never fails to throw our way!

My favourite aspect of my job:
I really enjoy my role within ADAMA. It’s a fast pace environment and offers good job satisfaction.
