Lewis started his career with Chief Agri more than 17 years ago as a controller for the division, which led to his most recent position as vice-president of operations. The company believes he has the experience and knowledge to provide the guidance required for continued success and growth in the agricultural industry. Lewis’ leadership will extend to all campuses of Chief Agri, which includes Kearney, Nebraska, Grand Island, Nebraska, Maldon Essex England and Rousies, France.
Lewis said he is excited about this opportunity to work closely with customers. His focus will include providing industry-leading customer service, innovative, competitive products and identifying opportunities for continued growth.
