Steve Virgin is NewsFinder's Chief Editor. He personally oversees every account here ensuring a quality service throughout.
Syngenta's Head of Global Media has agreed this today:
"Media Focus worked for the Syngenta Global Media Team for seven years. For the last four, they
provided a specialist early morning expert global agribusiness newsletter for 40+ team members
across multiple countries each day. Their editorial team built up a long-standing relationship as a
trustworthy and discrete supplier, attuned to Syngenta needs. The team delivered an intelligently
curated newsletter by the start of our working day, demonstrating reliability, and maintaining
detailed sector knowledge. This service provided news stories which showed validation of our global
media work, as well as an early warning system identifying opportunities and potential concerns
early, so we could address them quickly."
