He most recently served as the business development manager with Heartland Co-op; and he previously served in the United States Army as a military police officer for 6 years. Meredith received his Bachelor of Science degree from Upper Iowa University.

Liesener brings 25 years of experience in supporting growers, distributors and retailers in crop production decisions.

Liesener attended the University of North Dakota and maintains a state certification as a Certified Crop Advisor in North Dakota.

“Both the Midwest and Northern Plains territories will benefit from the additions of Ryan and Rick in their new roles with Arysta LifeScience,” said Gary Sabolik, Regional Sales Manager, Arysta LifeScience. “Their collective experiences within the ag industry will help our channel partners and their growers better understand and utilize the growing line of Arysta LifeScience crop protection products.”
