The Commercial Development Program (CDP) is ASR’s predominant program for challenging, training and grooming future ASR commercial leaders. Participants will rotate through three separate core commercial areas of ASR’s business over a 3-year period. In each rotation, participants will be challenged with high-impact, high-visibility assignments and responsibilities that drive real value for ASR. Throughout, participants will build foundational knowledge in ASR’s business while building relationships across the organization.


Each year CDP participants will join a separate ASR team and work alongside senior leadership on high profile projects. Participating functions may include Financial Planning & Analysis, Sustainability, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain, Corporate Development, and Global Sugars Group (commodity research, origination & trading). Each rotation will last approximately 12 months. Representative CDP rotations may include:


  • Corporate Development rotation participants gain experience conducting industry research, financial analysis and company/asset due diligence required to identify, evaluate and execute strategic transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, commercial partnerships and greenfield projects. 
  • Global Sugars Group rotation participants gain experience understanding commodity trading markets, buying and selling commodities, commodity supply chain planning, and commodity risk management.
  • Marketing rotation participants gain experience assessing market trends, needs and structure, and conducting competitive analysis along product lines, all while gaining experience in marketing products.
