We are thrilled to welcome Andrew Hiser to our team of PCM Specialists this February! He will be serving farmers in Sangamon, Christian, Macon and Macoupin counties.
Andrew was raised on his family’s farm near Monticello, IL and earned his BA in Technical Systems Management from the University of Illinois College of ACES. He has a broad agricultural background working in grain elevator operations, grain merchandising and logistics and ag machinery sales. He also owned and operated a clam and oyster farm in coastal South Carolina.
He currently resides in Petersburg, IL with his wife and two sons. Andrew enjoys lending a hand on his in-law’s farm and taking his boys camping and fishing any chance he gets.
Andrew’s connection to agriculture runs deep. Both his and his wife’s families have farmed and worked in agribusiness in Central Illinois for several generations. Through his schooling and career, he’s been able to forge several lasting relationships with farmers and industry leaders throughout the Midwest.
As a PCM Specialist, he hopes to bring his experience and connections together to help farmers thrive through sound business and land management practices. Andrew’s ultimate goal is for each family farm to be viable enough for the next generation to get the opportunity to carry the torch.
