Feb 26th, 2015

CHICAGO, IL —Chromatin, Inc., a leading agriculture technology company, today announced that it has appointed Charles Miller as its Vice President of Business Development and International Sales.

Charles brings over 19 years experience in leadership roles in the sorghum industry.  Before joining Chromatin, he was a principal in the sorghum company MMR Genetics/Richardson Seeds, and after its acquisition by NuFarm, became the Global Development Manager for NuFarm’s sorghum business.  Prior to that, he worked for Mars, Inc. for several years, where he gained deep experience in trading, logistics, and treasuries.

Upon joining Chromatin in 2012, Charles initially served as Director of International Sales and Business Development, and began building the company’s global business. As a result the Company’s international sales have grown rapidly throughout Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa, garnering Chromatin the 2014 State of Illinois Governor’s Export Award in the field of agricultural products, services, and technology in the small business category.  In addition to his role with Chromatin, Miller is also serving in the American Seed Trade Association as Chairman of the Corn and Sorghum Division.

“Charles’ vision, combined with the global network he has established, has tremendously augmented our business,” said Daphne Preuss, Chromatin’s CEO.  “Charles is leading an international team of Chromatin employees and we look forward to the lasting impact his team will have on the company.”

“Chromatin has an unparalleled commitment to sorghum, a crop that I have been focused on for many years,” said Miller.  “With sorghum’s ability to thrive even with limited water resources, this crop is well-positioned for a global resurgence.  Chromatin’s research and development efforts are providing high quality hybrids that meet the needs of growers around the world.  I’m proud to be part of this team.”
