The creative folks at Sage put together a great election night retirement party for long time John Deere employee Barry Nelson. There are many people in Kansas City this week for the multiple meetings taking place like the National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention. The ZimmComm Team is here too and we were able to bid a fond farewell to Barry, one of our favorite people in the agricultural marketing and communications industry.
For people who don’t know Barry, we call him the Magic Man because he does magic and he is very good at it. So of course he was able to pull out a pack of cards to entertain once again.
On a personal note, I consider Barry a good friend and a person who I’ve been blessed to know and work with on multiple John Deere marketing and promotion projects. I have lots of good memories that I’ll never forget because of Barry and will miss him out and about at industry events. We’ll stay in touch though.
