Scoular Announces Team to Support Grain Producers

Team will define innovative solutions to emerging farm management challenges

A new Scoular team will help producers capitalize on opportunities and navigate challenges as the demands of production agriculture evolve and technology increasingly influences the industry.

Led by Enterprise Director of Origination Melissa Norem, Scoular’s new producer origination team is building on the company’s long-standing farmer relationships and industry expertise.

“Technology and innovation are changing the world, as well as agriculture," Norem said. "As part of this change, Scoular has continually improved the customer experience as we work with farmers and farming communities.

“This new team is the tip of that spear. We all win when farmers and their communities grow and thrive.”

Producer team designed to offer consistency

The new producer origination team will:

  • Mobilize a team of origination personnel across Scoular to work with the company’s facility originators to create a consistent experience for all Scoular producers
  • Create a new grower roundtable to explore how Scoular can enhance farmer relationships
  • Define innovative solutions to emerging farm management challenges such as risk management and technology initiatives
  • Build and promote Scoular’s marketing tools and other farmer services

The team consists of:

  • Jordan Flynn manages design and build of Scoular’s producer risk management program.  He will work with Scoular’s facility network to bring farmers marketing ideas. Prior to joining Scoular, Flynn worked in various areas of ag including producer risk management, carbon program development and alternative fertilizer markets.   
  • Tara Olson leads producer outreach. Olson is supporting farmer appreciation meetings, connecting with farmers on social media and advancing Scoular’s reputation within Scoular’s communities. Prior to joining the team, Olson worked for Scoular’s brand marketing and corporate communications team and led the launch of Scoular’s brand refresh.
