During his 32-year career, Mr. Crews led Monsanto through several unique transitions including Monsanto's integration of its first seed company investments in the 1990s, its original initial public offering and ultimate spinoff earlier this decade, as well as the company's settlement proceedings with Solutia last year. Mr. Crews' financial discipline is credited with supporting Monsanto in its historic annual earnings growth path of 20 percent which enabled the St. Louis-based company to return value to its shareowners, invest in new innovations for farmers as well as support a number of acquisitions over the years including Delta and Pine Land, Seminis and De Ruiter Seeds.
