IMAGINE Leaders – Arnd Nenstiel
Bayer, Senior Project Lead EU Green Deal
In my previous roles, I have been leading Strategic Marketing for Bayer’s Herbicides portfolio and immediately prior to that, I served as the ag division’s Global Head of Public and Governmental Affairs. As part of my corporate “journey” I spent 5 years in Asia, first as Chief of Staff in Singapore and after that as Country Commercial Lead in Vietnam. Throughout my corporate career I was fortunate to gain a broad experience across different parts of the corporate value chain in global, regional and local roles – having had the privilege to live and work in very different geographies, driving enterprise and people growth, being passionate for change and anchoring business strategy and sustainability. I studied business management at the University Essen, Germany (B. Sc.) and at IE Business School (MBA) in Madrid. To broaden my personal horizon, I subsequently obtained a Master of Laws (LL. M.) degree and, to conclude my part- time academic career, I obtained a Ph. D. in Agricultural Economics. I am a proud husband and father and serve as voluntary paramedic with a local ambulance organization close to where we live as a family. I enjoy travelling and exploring the world, near and far, with my family.
