HELM Agro US names Bruce sales manager for new territory

HELM Agro US has hired John Bruce as sales  manager for the company’s newly created Eastern Corn Belt and Northeast sales territory.

This new sales region was created to increase the level of customer service provided by Tampa, Florida-based HELM Agro US to its agricultural distributor and retail partners throughout the Midwest and Northeast.

In this role, Bruce will be responsible for driving sales of the company’s crop protection portfolio and supporting its channel partners in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Wisconsin and New England.

Most recently, he worked as Midwest Sales Manager for Amvac Environmental Products. Prior to that, Bruce served both Fafard Group and Syngenta in Territory Sales Manager positions. He also worked in sales and account management roles with Cheminova and Eden Pest Management.

“We’re fortunate to have someone of John’s caliber join the organization,” said Jan Stechmann, president of HELM Agro US.
