An Liru, SVP China



“China is the third largest and one of the fastest growing
crop protection markets in the world, as well as a leading source
for innovative development and high-quality manufacturing for the
global agrochemical industry. Our effort in China aims to
capitalize on the multiple opportunities in this fast-growing
market, and to support the China Forward vision of Adama.”


Bringing extensive experience as an executive in
the crop protection industry and the agrochemical and chemical
sectors, An Liru joined Adama in 2017, following the successful
combination of Adama and Sanonda, having played a pivotal role in the
integration process.


Prior to his current role, he served as the
secretary of the CPC and chairman of CNAC (China National Agrochemical
Corporation), and has led the HH and Anpon entities, which are part of
the ChemChina group. Under his leadership these entities greatly
improved their performance and results.


In his current role, An has overall responsibility
for Adama’s China operations, aiming to expand our commercial presence
and develop our operational and R&D capabilities, serving both our
Chinese and global markets.


Throughout his career, An has drawn great
inspiration from the famous African proverb: “If you want to go fast,
go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” He believes in the
great talent available in China, and that it will contribute much to
Adama’s global success.


An holds an MBA and a Master’s degree in Chemical
Engineering, and a B.Sc. in Applied Chemistry, all from Nanjing University.


An Liru enjoys badminton, mountain climbing, and
reading, especially philosophy.
