Nick Macris joins mOasis as Director of Sales and Marketing. Ag industry veteran to focus on continued expansion of BountiGel®.
Union City, CA (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
mOasis (www.mOasisGel.com), announced that it is welcoming Nick Macris to its growing management team as Director of Sales and Marketing for U.S. markets.
Nick will be managing sales and marketing activities for the overall U.S. marketplace, and will initially be focusing on commercialization and sales of the company’s BountiGel® soil moisture management product to growers in California and Arizona.
Nick’s experience commercializing new technologies includes working with Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. in a global business development and manufacturing capacity in the area of biological pest control. During his tenure, he was involved in the launch and expansion of Marrone’s Regalia® Bio-Fungicide into Europe, Africa, Middle East, and South America. He also worked as an Industry Manager for FMC Corporation, and served as Business Development Manager for Rohm and Haas Corporation, where he was tasked with searching for biological pesticides to license or acquire. He has an M.E.Sc. degree in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering and a Master’s in Business Administration, both from Western University in Canada.
Commenting on his move to mOasis, Nick said, “I have always been attracted to companies that have innovative, game-changing technologies. While there is a perception that there have been products similar to mOasis’ BountiGel® in the past, it is vividly clear to me that its newer Aquamer® technology does a better job in increasing crop quality and yield, while at the same time minimizing water use. I am excited to join mOasis at this stage of the company’s growth.”
Steve Hartmeier, CEO of mOasis, stated, “We’re very happy to have Nick on board. His extensive industry experience is expected to have a positive impact on our efforts to introduce the benefits of BountiGel® to growers. And, he’s joining us at an important point in our timeline, especially given the ongoing water issues in key agricultural markets and the opportunities that this presents for continued expansion of BountiGel®.”
Based in Union City, CA, mOasis specializes in the application of science to create innovative products which address current challenges in agriculture. Through advanced, proprietary chemistry incorporated into the Company’s Aquamer® technology, the Company manufactures BountiGel® a non‐toxic soil additive that allows growers to optimize water resources for maximized crop yields and water conservation. BountiGel holds excess water near the seeds or roots and releases it as soil dries resulting in less plant stress and significantly higher crop yields while reducing water needs. The company is also exploring broader applications of the technology into seed treatments, soil erosion solutions, and municipal and consumer applications. The company’s vision is to promote economic and environmental sustainability anywhere water is used globally. For more information, please visit http://www.mOasisGel.com
