Carol’s role as Sales Partner entails maintaining existing and attracting new programmatic and social media clients, which is made possible through her vast repertoire of past acquaintances and business partners in the agricultural arena. Prior to joining Big Reach Network, Carol served as National Sales Manager for DTN/Progressive and NAEDA Equipment Dealer agri-business publications providing sales, management and operational support. Carol is also former Executive Director for the Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation, as well as liaison for Kahn, Soares & Conway (a law firm that represented agricultural clients worldwide) for the Washington, D.C. office and the firm’s other three offices in California.
As International Marketing Specialist for the Michigan Department of Agriculture, Carol was instrumental in implementing the Department’s international trade program for the promotion of Michigan agricultural products abroad with foreign importers and government officials to promote sales between prospective buyers and sellers. In addition, Carol has found time to serve on a number of boards throughout her career, including the Michigan Governor’s Commission on China, Mid-America International Trade Council, Michigan Export Development Authority, Michigan Child Study Group, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Gateway to Invest (Missouri Chapter), to name a few.
