    Kincannon & Reed, the leading global retained executive search firm serving the food, agribusiness, and life sciences sectors, today announced that Juan Pablo Buc Calderon has joined the firm as a Managing Director. Working from Chile and Perú, Juan Pablo will serve Kincannon & Reed’s agribusiness and food clients throughout Latin America.

    Prior to joining Kincannon & Reed, Juan Pablo worked extensively in Chilean agriculture, occupying key executive positions in recognized companies in the fruit export sector and agribusiness. He brings a deep understanding of the agricultural production value chain and its challenges, and serves as a trusted adviser to producers, suppliers, and buyers of food products both in Chile and abroad.

    Among his previous positions, Juan Pablo worked in the production area for Del Monte Fresh and David del Curto, and developed his executive commercial career at SQM, a global leader in specialty fertilizers. He is also the founder and general manager of Exactta Agroheadhunter, with more than 10 years of recruitment experience in both Chile and Perú.

    David Turner, Managing Partner for Latin America, commented, “Chile and Perú are important markets in the Latin American region. They are relatively stable and growing in sectors like aquaculture, produce, and wineries; however, they have been underserved as global market members. Juan Pablo’s regional expertise and  background are a perfect match with Kincannon & Reed’s status as the only executive search firm with global coverage in agribusiness.”

    Juan Pablo holds an MBA from Tulane University, and an Ingeniero Agrónomo degree from Universidad de Chile.
