I have been associated with Huma for as long as I can remember. Currently, I hold the position of CEO at Huma, a role I took on in the spring of 1995. During my tenure, I have contributed to redefining our company’s vision and strategies, transforming it from a state of bankruptcy to a profitable multimillion-dollar, mid-size global business.
I pursued my higher education at Brigham Young University (BYU), where I obtained a B.S. degree in Financial Planning in 1984. While serving in the National Guard, I continued my studies and earned a Juris Doctorate degree from BYU in 1990. Fluent in Spanish, I had the opportunity to explore the language and culture during a two-year stint in Spain. I am fortunate that my extensive travels have taken me to diverse corners of the world, helping me understand our global customers better. This language proficiency initially facilitated our expansion into most of Latin America. Over time, we have also developed significant distribution networks in Asia, Europe, Middle East, and several other parts of the world.
In addition to my responsibilities at Huma, I actively serve on committees and boards of directors for national agriculture associations such as the Ag Retailers Association (ARA), The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), and the Humic Products Trade Association (HPTA). I have been a long-time member of esteemed organizations like the Fluid Fertilizer Foundation (FFF), International Humic Substance Society (IHSS), American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), and Water Environment Federation (WEF). When I’m away from my desk, I love being surrounded by my eight kids and several grandkids.
