Brandt has added industry veteran John Raben to its seed sales team. Raben brings more than 40 years of experience to the Team.
Raben has spent the majority of his career—24 years—at Bayer (via its Monsanto acquisition) focusing on key accounts and grower solutions. His new role will be growing relationships with key seed customers and partners of Brandt in central Illinois. Raben will also provide mentorship and sales training to new team members.
“I’m really looking forward to working with and growing the Brandt customer base. They offer a vast portfolio of products, have a strong reputation and a laser focus on customers. To be successful, you have to focus on the customers. It’s all about helping them succeed and providing the right solutions. I’m excited to come to Brandt because their whole organization gets that concept.”
Raben and his family reside in Pawnee, IL. He holds a BS in Business and Animal Science, and a MS in Economics both from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. He is also a Certified Crop Advisor (CCA).
“John Raben is a preeminent leader in our industry. His experience, professionalism, and leadership will accelerate the strength and growth of our seed business in Illinois. “
