Westminster, MD (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
MidAtlantic Farm Credit recently announced the promotion of Matt Ritenour to crop insurance specialist. Formerly a marketing specialist for the MidMaryland and Valley regions, Ritenour will be based in the company’s Winchester, Virginia office. “I really enjoy working with farmers and orchardists helping them manage their risks,” says Ritenour. “They expect the best each year, especially from their crops, and I strive to make things as easy as possible so they can make the best management decision for their individual needs.”
As a crop insurance agent, Ritenour will work with customers to assess areas of risk and make recommendations to ensure their crops will be protected in times of low production or weather related disasters. “Matt’s knowledge of crop insurance, coupled with his experience in the marketing field, will be a great benefit to our customers,” says Kathi Levan, crop insurance manager with MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “Crop insurance is Matt’s only focus, so I know he’ll give our customers the service they deserve.”
Ritenour started his career with MidAtlantic Farm Credit as a Credit Analyst after earning his Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Marketing from Morehead State University in 2003. Beginning in 2005, he worked as a member services and marketing coordinator, spending most of his time between crop insurance and marketing. He has been a marketing specialist since 2009. Outside of working, Ritenour enjoys spending time with his wife and twin daughters and appreciating the outdoors.
