Future Seed Executives (FuSE) had a week full of activities last week at the ASTA CSS & Seed Expo, including some quality time with Bill Whitacre president and CEO of Simplot.

FuSE Iniative is an official subcommittee of the American Seed Trade Association’s (ASTA) Management Skills Committee. Since its formal inception in 2004, FuSE has focused on educating and supporting seed industry professionals with fewer than seven years of seed industry experience. Programs are designed as regional opportunities to expand learning, cultivate management skills, promote networking and improve general understanding of the seed industry.

“FuSE has been important to me,” FuSE chairman Ryan Betka of Syngenta told me. “It’s something that my boss and I discuss every year as we set performance objectives throughout the year is how am I going to develop professionally. FuSE is always number one on that objective for me.”
