Jamey Albrecht, forage portfolio marketing leader with Mycogen Seeds, has been recognized as a Future Giant of the Seed Industry by Seed World magazine, in partnership with the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA).
Albrecht was among the top four national nominees honored at ASTA’s 132nd annual convention in Washington, D.C.
“Rising stars like Jamey are making a significant impact on how we develop and deliver products to maximize the profitability of dairy producers and forage growers,” says Damon Palmer, national seed brands leader, Dow AgroSciences. “She understands the importance of the basics, and harnesses her passion and knowledge to infuse our forage business with new thinking.”
Albrecht began her career with Mycogen Seeds as a sales representative in 2009. Starting in a new territory in the Pacific Northwest, she helped build the Mycogen brand and forage product offering in the area. She was named 2011 Mycogen Seeds Rookie of the Year and honorary member of the Washington State University Dairy Club for these efforts.
Albrecht continues to use her first-hand field experience to add value in her current role. She is now responsible for strategically aligning products, resources and investments to grow the company’s forage portfolio, including Mycogen® brand bm3 BMR, TMF and alfalfa products. Outside of work, Albrecht is a member of the National Agri-Marketing Association and raises and shows beef cattle.
“Jamey is challenging the status quo to provide solutions for the dairy and beef industries,” Palmer says. “That mindset is what makes Mycogen Seeds a leading forage provider and one of the fastest-growing seed companies.”
The Future Giants of the Seed Industry was created by Seed World and ASTA’s Future Seed Executives. The program honors individuals early in their careers who work with seasoned veterans to learn about industry issues, acknowledge the past and are led by a true passion for agriculture and the seed industry.
Andrew Ferrel, commercial agronomist for Mycogen Seeds in Indiana, was also recognized among the top four national award nominees. Albrecht and Ferrel continue Dow AgroSciences’ legacy of leadership in the seed industry.
