GroPro Corp., an international Biotech bio-fertilizers, bio-stimulants and bio-pesticides manufacturer headquartered in Burnsville, Minnesota, has hired Warren Hragyil as national sales director. Hragyil has decades of experience in U.S. Agriculture markets, primarily focused on areas of crop protection sales, marketing and operations. He has worked in senior sales and management roles at Simplot, Adama, Aligned Ag Distributors, United Suppliers Inc. and others.
“We are thrilled to hire a well-connected and experienced professional like Warren to our team here at GroPro,” said James Lamoreaux, CEO of GroPro Corp. “His impressive industry background and strong leadership abilities will help to fulfill our expanding strategy in the U.S. market, working closely with our major distributors & retailers to develop win-win offerings.” In his new role, Warren’s primary responsibilities will be to drive sales for Gro Pro’s products, manage senior client relationships, lead the sales team and successfully implement effective commercial strategies.
The hire was a part of GroPro’s active team expansion plan with two primary objectives: raise brand awareness and increase market penetration with strategic partners. Earlier this month GroPro Corp. hired veteran agriculture industry executive Benito Varela as the new Chief Operating Officer focusing on U.S. and international expansion and operations.
