Matthews as senior vice president and sector head responsible for Trimble's Agriculture, Forestry, Positioning Services and HarvestMark Divisions, effective Sept. 1, 2015. Matthews brings over 20 years of experience in crop protection, seeds, nutrition and manufacturing.

Matthews was most recently the president and general manager of the NAFTA Region for Nufarm Americas, Inc., a publicly-traded multinational agricultural chemical company. During his 15 year career at the company, he also served as general manager of Nufarm Agriculture, Inc. in Canada. Matthews began his career at Dow AgroSciences in Canada where he held management roles in sales and marketing.

His background is particularly relevant as we both navigate current agricultural headwinds and anticipate the coming information-based agricultural transformation."
