StollerUSA, the leader in plant performance technology, announces two new members to their sales team. Rick Gaffney and Mike Martinez join Stoller in an effort to expand sales support throughout the Midwest and California.
Rick Gaffney brings more than 30 years of agriculture sales expertise to his new position. Serving the Illinois and Eastern Iowa territory, Gaffney excels at working with growers to find specific solutions to their unique challenges. He joins the team after previously working at Ag Supply Inc. where he managed purchasing and sales of various agriculture products. Gaffney’s experience in the agriculture industry and commitment to serving the grower is a perfect fit to the sales force.
“It’s great to work with a well established company who has the research and technology to back their products,” says Gaffney. “Bio-Forge® interest in my territory is rapidly growing and I’m excited for the opportunity to provide quality products to growers looking to boost their bottom line.”
Covering Southern California, Mike Martinez will focus his skills on providing product and industry knowledge needed to help growers maximize the efficiency of managing crops. Martinez holds a degree from California State University, Fresno in Animal Science and has 15 years of experience in the fruit and vegetable industry. Most recently working at Marrone Bio Innovations as a Regional Sales Representative, Martinez’s technical knowledge of the California territory is a great addition to the Stoller team.
