MAITC, Inc. Foundation Board
Why did you join the board?
MAITC provides great value to having youth understanding all the opportunities that are available in ag. Hopefully my experience can provide value to this mission.
What MAITC program or initiative are you most passionate about and why?
All the opportunities that are available for our youth in agriculture and getting our young people to understand that you can have a great career in multiple areas in ag.
What is your favorite agricultural product and why?
The swine industry. I have spent a good part of my career across the US and I believe the US is the best in the world at producing pork. There are multiple careers you can have in the industry as well.
What is your profession?
I am an advocate for agriculture. I have spent a few days a week at Schwartz Farms as an advisor to the family business. They are based out of Sleepy Eye MN. Prior to that, I was at Compeer Financial where I was the Chief Diversified Markets Officer. I spent 25 years within the Farm Credit system and I was able to work with a wide range of companies in the agriculture field.
