Industry veteran George Casey joined Neogen as the key account manager for sales in the Professional Pest Management (PPM) division.
The position of key account manager is a newly created position to enhance existing customer relationships and oversee strategic business expansion.
Casey is an experienced sales and management professional who most recently worked in business-to-business media and marketing. He brings to the team over 30 years of industry experience across structural pest control, turf and ornamental, and specialty agriculture.
Prior to joining Neogen, Casey was executive director of business development at Meister Media Worldwide as a commercial sales director of events and publisher for over 10 years. He received his bachelor of arts degree in communication and media studies from Cleveland State University in 1992.
Casey is based near Cleveland, Ohio, and says he is “eager to continue educating customers how to optimize profitability while effectively managing pest-related challenges,” according to the news release.
Neogen provides a comprehensive range of solutions and services for the food processing, animal protein and agriculture industries, not only helping to protect the world’s food supply, but helping to enable its customers to produce more efficiently and effectively.
Back in 1982, per a history that appears on the Neogen website, scientific innovations blossoming out of Michigan State University needed an avenue to reach the people who could use them to better the world — solutions searching for problems. The university reached out to the men who would become Neogen’s founders, Ted Doan and James Herbert, and soon after, the company was born. What started as a small team that held organization-wide meetings in a single hallway in Lansing, Mich., expanded into new industries and new states, soon reaching across one ocean, then another. Neogen became a publicly traded company in 1989. Today, it has teams stationed in 12 countries and a sales presence in more than 140.
