Wabash, Indiana-based AgVenture McKillip Seeds has hired Chad Ealing, Roanoke, to serve farmers across east central Indiana and western Ohio as an AgVenture Yield Specialist.
AgVenture McKillip Seeds Sales and Marketing Manager, Mitch Snyder said, “We’re a very pleased to bring Chad on as an AgVenture Yield Specialist. Actually, our family business, McKillip Seeds was a customer of Chad’s in his previous role. His experience during his 13-year career has been built on service, education and competent delivery of products and services to his customers. He brings integrity and a hard work ethic to the table. We look for him to be a solid asset to every customer – helping them achieve greater profitability on every acre.”
Ealing has worked together with many area farmers over the past four years with another regional family owned and operated business. He worked out of Fort Wayne for a truck and rail scale business. Prior to that, he spent nearly 10 years working in various roles advancing his sales and proficiency skills.
He said, “AgVenture McKillip Seeds is a perfect fit for me – allowing me to work closely and throughout the year with my customers. Maximizing yield has so many components. I look forward to putting our Maximum Profit SystemTM (MPS) to work for my customers.” MPS is an intensive, systems-based approach to dramatically increasing yield, lowering cost per bushel and helping growers maximize yield on every acre. “MPS provides our customers with practical tools and unique approaches to managing the crop for maximum performance.”
Ealing concluded, “I see the passion this family business has for their customers and for doing things right. I am committed to bringing value to McKillip Seeds and to every customer.”
Ealing grew up near Ossian, Ind., and attended Norwell High School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from University of Phoenix. He currently resides at Roanoke with his wife, Brooke, and their young son.
