It has been an honor to serve the fertilizer industry

January 7, 2013 Discussed (37)

Effective December 2013, I will be retiring from The Fertilizer Institute (TFI).
I joined TFI on November 1, 1979, and have served as its President since September 6, 2005.  It has been an honor to represent the fertilizer industry over the past 33 years. 

The fertilizer industry plays a vital role in world food production and is dedicated to helping feed the world’s growing population. I have had the pleasure of working for many great people in ensuring that this message is heard by government institutions; the media and the general public.  I thank those who took the time to mentor me and help me to appreciate the difference between “dirt and soil,” to understand the science involved in the production and use of fertilizer and to appreciate the historical role and contribution of fertilizer to the food chain.

Fertilizer touches many hands before it arrives in farm fields and TFI provides a forum where fertilizer producers, importers, wholesalers and retailers can share their perspectives on common problems and develop approaches to meet these challenges.  I am very proud to have been a part of that process.

I also want to recognize the dedicated staff at TFI and the Nutrients for Life Foundation. Any success I have had as President is due to a combined effort of these association professionals working together for the good of the industry.

Moving forward, TFI’s Board of Directors has established a Presidential Search Committee comprised of five Executive Committee members who will operate under the leadership of TFI Board Chairman Jim Prokopanko.  The committee held its first meeting in late December in Chicago.  Spencer Stuart, one of the world’s leading executive search consulting firms has been retained to assist the search committee in the candidate selection process. 

I am sure the Search Committee will select a leader who will build upon TFI’s history and achievements and lead TFI to be an even more effective and impactful organization for the fertilizer industry.  Please know that I will do all that I can to assist that effort.

We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? So this is what we've chosen to do with our life. stilnox online http://www.costapharmacy.com/buy-stilnox/

Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.

A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets. ativan online

What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.
