AgTECT Western Regional Sales Manager
Cole joined Extron after a 14 year career working closely with all facets of the agricultural industry, providing him with the experience and understanding of the business decisions his customers have to make on a daily basis. As an operations manager, Cole worked closely with many large operations throughout the Midwest, running facilities in Kansas, Nebraska and Minnesota as well as contributing in several building startups.
Cole’s passion for agriculture began as a young boy growing up in a small farming community in Western Kansas. Surrounded by the great men in Cole’s life all working in the agricultural industry, it naturally became of part of his everyday life. Getting heavily involved in the FFA organization in High School fostered his love for agriculture even more, leading him to pursue a degree from Kansas State University with a study in Agricultural Technology Management and Agricultural Economics. Still pursuing to advance his knowledge and experience, Cole is currently enrolled in K-State working on his MBA and Masters of Agribusiness.
“Having worked in grain operations management at many facilities, from a small truck house to a large shuttle loader, I understand the uphill battle they face every day and I am looking forward to being a trusted advisor in not only Extron products but all facets of grain operations. I have a willingness to go the extra mile for my customers. If something isn’t right, I will do anything I can to remediate the situation, no matter what time or day.”
In his free time, Cole enjoys hunting, fishing, is a forever fan of Kansas State University sporting events, mastering the BBQ smoker for his family to enjoy and rooting the CHEIFS on as a loyal fan. “Given the opportunity, you will find me in Manhattan or Arrowhead on any given weekend during the football season cheering on KSU and the CHEIFS” said Cole. “GO CHEIFS!!”
