Marketing Manager

URGENT NEED! My client is a longstanding player in the crop input space. While other ag companies have been bought, sold, merged and acquired over the last 75 years, my client has remained independent and they are thriving! Their culture is that of transparency, candor and a down-to-earth persona that their grower-customers have come to value. These cultural traits and a great team of dedicated employees have doubled sales in the last five (5) years. Their rapid business growth has brought about several new openings on their marketing and communications team, including a need for a new Marketing Manager.

This A-Player will lead a team of 4 direct reports and oversee the day to day marketing and communications team.
If you are ready to challenge yourself with a new marketing role and have no hesitation about relocation, this just may be the opportunity for you!

  • 6 to 9 years progressively more responsible career track within agricultural marketing and communications
