Davis, CA – March 5, 2018 – Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ: MBII) (MBI), a leading provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products for agriculture, turf and ornamental and water treatment markets, is happy to announce that Evan Carlisle has joined MBI as Territory Sales Manager, serving eastern Washington.

For more than 20 years Evan has worked in the crop protection industry in the Pacific Northwest. Evan grew up in agriculture in the California delta in his family’s orchards and walking fields for his father’s crop consulting and research company. He graduated with a B.S. in Agronomy from Montana State University in 1997 and received his MBA in 2016 from Western Governors University.

Evan was Regional Account Manager-Seed Treatment for Nufarm Americas, Biorational Crop Specialist, Market Development Specialist, and Sales Representative for Valent USA and held jobs earlier in his career with Griffin, UPI, MANA, and Alligare.

“I look forward to working with the MBI Team and to help build Marrone Bio Innovations to be the leader of biologicals in the crop protection industry,” said Evan.

We are pleased to have someone with Evan’s experience to build MBI’s business in a new territory where MBI’s products Regalia, Stargus, Grandevo, Venerate, Majestene and Haven all have a fit on the crops in the region. For example, Washington is the largest producer of organic apples, which continue their consumer-driven growth.

Evan lives in Kennewick, WA.
