Sisk, a graduate of Purdue University, manages the company’s internal and external communications. She is active in ASTA’s Communications Committee and the Future Seed Executives program. She’s also served on the Indiana Crop Improvement Association’s Corn Belt Conference Planning Committee, the National FFA Career Development Event Committee and is a member of the National Agri-Marketing Association.

“Samantha took a non-existent communications policy and developed a seamless strategy, integrating the whole company,” wrote Thomas Koch of AgReliant Genetics, who nominated Sisk. “Her position is one of the most cross-departmental of our company with all departments calling her one of their own. Samantha has transitioned a position of basic communication into one of strong leadership influence within our company.”
