Agriculturally speaking, success does not come by planting seeds, then anxiously hovering over them in the hopes that they transform overnight into a bumper crop.
Success is a process that requires patience, persistence, cultivation of relationships and learning through experience what works and--perhaps even more importantly--what doesn't work. Our president, Scott McAdam, embodies this long-term approach. It's how he and his brother, Rob, have not only survived but thrived for more than 37 years in an increasingly competitive business landscape.
And that philosophy was at the heart of significant recognition that he recently received from his alma mater, the University of Illinois' College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES).
