NEWS: New Director of Sales & Education

Hummert is pleased to announce the promotion of Dr. Chad Follis to Director of Sales and Education. Dr. Follis joined us last year as a member of the Educational Resources department. In that position, he worked closely with the Marketing and Sales teams to develop product knowledge for distribution to customers and employees. Dr. Follis acquired a vast understanding of Hummert’s product offerings and sales processes during that time and is excited to work closely with the sales team in his new role.

His professional experience includes the Division Chair of Agriculture, Science and Math and Department Chair and Professor of Agriculture Greenhouse and Sports Field Supervisor at a Missouri college. Additionally, Dr. Follis has a strong background in greenhouse operations, crops, hemp, vegetables, turf, and sports fields. And with many published industry pieces, he has also written grants to help the education community, and has experience working with different types of pollinators.

While directing the Educational Resources department at Hummert, Dr. Follis led the development and application of educational training sessions, covering most of the product lines we carry. His industry knowledge, strong relationships with our Marketing and Sales teams, and enthusiasm to learn and succeed made him an excellent candidate for this promotion.

As Director of Sales and Education, Dr. Follis will lead the continued growth of our Sales team. He will meet one-on-one with Territory Managers to create and manage goals, travel with territory managers, celebrate successes, and overcome obstacles utilizing his expertise. He will also collaborate with the Marketing and Technology teams to create timely marketing messages and promotions, and implement tools to improve efficiency.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Chad Follis as Hummert’s Director of Sales and Education.
