Origin Agritech Limited (NASDAQ:SEED) (“Origin” or the “Company”), a technology-focused supplier of crop seeds and agricultural products in China, today announced that Dr. James Chen will join Origin’s executive management team as the Chief Financial Officer.

Dr. Chen served as an Investment Manager at Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), the sovereign wealth fund owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi.

He was a member of a top-ranked analyst team rated by Institutional Investors Journal and Wall Street Journal for their collective coverage in such companies as Dow Chemicals, Du Pont and Monsanto. Dr. Chen started his career at Univation Technologies, a joint venture between Exxon Mobile and Dow Chemical.

“With his balanced experience in capital markets and global chemical industries, James is uniquely qualified to lead our financial operations in the current global macro environment. We are very excited to welcome him to Origin,” said Dr. Gengchen Han, Origin’s Chairman, President and CEO. “With key leadership transitions in place, we are now well positioned to expand our leadership in China’s hybrid crop seeds market and continue the development and commercial application of our GMO portfolio.”

Dr. Chen is a Chartered Financial Analyst. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from East China University of Science and Technology and an M.B.A. from New York University. Dr. Chen received his Ph.D. Degree in Chemical Engineering from University of Connecticut.
