“Again, with the support of senior management, we reached out to our US counterparts and Nutrien facilitated another transfer for me to the US business. This time around I am working across the Colonial Division, which covers Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Surprisingly, this area has strong corn, wheat and soybean yields that can put their mid-west cousins to shame. It’s also got a nice mix of pastures, fruit and vegetable crops.”
“I have a very diverse role here supporting the division management team. In 2022 I had 15 young agronomists that I mentored, as well as working on recruiting talent, business acquisitions and broader business strategy, particularly around our proprietary products. When I am not travelling for work, I am based out of the Washington DC office, which is home to our Industry and Government Affairs team. Being based here has given me exposure to some of the local and international policies as well as geopolitical issues that influence the commodities we deal in every day,” said Dave.
