Meet the Nutrient Use Efficiency People™: Bob Pound

It’s a good thing Bob Pound has a love of travel. After all, the Account Manager for Verdesian Life Sciences has seen a large part of the United States (and the world) thanks to his career in agriculture.

Bob also has a deep-seated love of agriculture. He grew up on a Century Dairy Farm in Hamilton NY, south of Syracuse. He went on to earn an Agronomy degree from S.U.N.Y Cobleskill with a minor in Ag Business. Bob’s first job out of college was with Agway Coop (now Growmark) in its fertilizer division.

Bob has served as vice president of agronomy in Burlington, WI and has worked for Arcadian (bought by PCS) and Agrico Chemical. His work includes Prairie Creek Terminals in Elwood, IL as VP of Sales & Marketing, and as a technical sales representative for Specialty Fertilizer Products (a Verdesian legacy company). Bob moved to Florida to cover the South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. He also spent time with United Suppliers and ICL Fertilizers.

Today, Bob is an account manager for Verdesian Life Sciences, covering a territory that includes Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

When he is not passing on his extensive agronomic knowledge to others, he is spending time with his grandchildren, hunting, fishing, restoring vintage boats (right) and, of course, traveling.

“I’ve truly been blessed with the ability to work for so many wonderful organizations in agriculture,” says Bob. “I am also fortunate that it has allowed me the opportunity to live and work in different, beautiful parts of the United States.”

In an industry that is historically male-dominated, Jamie Jones more than holds her own. Of course, as a mother of three boys, she is used to hanging with the fellas.
