Written by NAMA on Friday, August 30, 2019 , 10:37 am

The NAMA Professional Development Awards of Excellence honor members of the organization based on outstanding achievement in each of the Professional Development Areas.  The awards will be presented in conjunction with the NAMA Fall Conference, October 7-9, in St. Louis.

NAMA is excited to announce three marketing and agricultural leaders as winners of the 2019 Professional Development Awards of Excellence.

This year, NAMA recognizes Douglas Reynolds, Marketing and Digital Communications Leader of the United States Region for Corteva Agriscience, in the Marketing Communications area; Hannah Thompson-Weeman, Vice President of Communications for the Animal Agriculture Alliance in the area of Public Relations; and Bob Brunker, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing for J. L. Farmakis, Inc., in the area of Sales.

Reynolds played an instrumental role in the successful formation of Corteva Agriscience, the agricultural spinoff of DowDuPont. He is a visionary force guiding the marketing and communications arm for the newly formed company to strengthen and grow the Crop Protection division and all Pioneer brand product lines.

Thompson-Weeman passionately represents livestock and poultry producers in the media and to a variety of influential audiences. She has a strong grasp of issues and is a go-to source of information. Media coverage for the Animal Agriculture Alliance has doubled during her tenure and she’s helping create a bright future for animal agriculture.

Brunker is a respected and trusted sales professional who values relationships. He genuinely cares about clients and peers and is a resource for media buyers, planners, marketing executives and coworkers. Brunker’s dedication to people over the past 15 years has helped lead to a three-time increase in business for J. L. Farmakis, Inc.

NAMA congratulates these three amazing industry leaders on their achievements.
