The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) 2020 Agribusiness Leader of the Year is Scott Druker, General Manager, Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production. Now in its 20th year, the award will be presented at the 2020 Agri-Marketing Conference, April 15-17, in San Diego, California.
Druker joined the Arm & Hammer Animal Nutrition business unit of Church & Dwight Co., Inc. as senior business manager in November 2009. He was promoted to director of animal nutrition in 2012 and to his current position of general manager in 2017.
During these years, Druker led Church & Dwight through multiple acquisitions in the livestock and food safety sector, transforming the company’s focus from a primarily North American dairy feed ingredient business to a global, multi-species and multi-channel livestock production and food safety enterprise. Under his leadership, Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production has met its business vision of becoming the only food chain partner integrating diverse technologies for animal and food production systems, providing solutions from on-farm through processing to improve the safety and reliability of the world food supply.
Today, Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production is the industry’s only comprehensive animal nutrition, food production and food safety solutions provider, employing about 130 across the globe—and still growing—compared with 19 employees in North America before 2015.
