"
I am a graduate from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa of the Faculty of Accounting and Administration, period 2007-2012. I joined HAZERA on January 2, 2017 doing mainly administrative activities, such as budget control of office expenses, contracts with suppliers of all kinds, payments, leases, etc., shortly after I had the opportunity to take full control of the seed inventories both commercial and for sample, where I am in charge of distribution to customers and distributors, as well as the corresponding billing of each sale. In turn, I integrate into my activities any movement related to foreign trade, (Imports and Exports), as well as commercial seed purchase orders. Little by little I became more involved and I was assigned as responsible for everything related to Marketing, both digital and branding in general, to the point of being coordinator of our participation in Expos and Events around the country, we currently have participation in the Expo Agroalimentaria Irapuato , the most important agro-food event in Latin America, where we can feel proud of our past successful participations. Currently I present my activities to the General Management and Finance area with reports, KPIs and database that serve as indicators for decision making in the subsidiary. "Being part of Hazera's team is very rewarding for me, as it is a very important company in the seed industry with a global presence ... I have no doubt that Hazera is a great place to work and develop your skills , allows you to make a professional career of quality and more important, to be able to take a balance between your personal and professional life, today I can feel proud of being able to contribute to the development and growth of the subsidiary in Mexico and be surrounded by such capable people that inspire me to give my best and grow.

"…I have never been a number with Hazera, I am a name and it makes me feel important. When issues arise, there is always someone listening, and not just listening but taking action! "
"…I come from an Agriculture back ground. My dad was in the forest service so I grew up in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It was there that I fell in love with agriculture. Dad always talked about tree propagation, and when my grandpa came out from Iowa, they would tell stories of farming corn. It helps that agriculture was deep rooted in my genes. So, I attend California State University Fresno and earned my BSc degree in plant science in 1985. I was hired by BASF while attending CSUF and continued to work at BASF, R&D until 2002. In March 2004 I was hired by Hazera and it has been the best move of my life. I have worked for several ranches and for one of the top 3 chemical companies in the World, So I can say without a doubt Hazera is tops. Why? Hazera people, from the time I was hired are real, down to earth, and make me feel appreciated. I have never been a number with Hazera, I am a name and it makes me feel important, even at my lowest of responsibilities. When issues arise, there is always someone listening, and not just listening but taking action! Since I was hired in 2004, Hazera USA has changed for the positive in so many ways. This I feel is because of actions taken by a management team who actually listened to what we said was needed to make Hazera a desired company to work for."

On November 15, 1995 my way with Hazera started. To work at Hazera means that I am part of a global working team. My job includes a wide field of tasks. Among other things I also participate in the warehouse team of our sister company Limagrain Germany GmbH as we are located here on the same site.
I am working in the fields of grain breeding as well as in the seed processing, in the warehouse and in the production. The versatile work process includes practical work in the fields as well as work in the warehouse and on the other hand also the office job. I am aimed at providing good, fast and safe service to our customers. The very good cooperation in our team, in which the hierarchies are kept flat, is supporting my work. A great advantage is the fact that my residence is very close to my workplace and the green working environment, too. The possibility to work here on my own and the big responsibility let me feel a great commitment to my job.” Wolfgang has been heading the logistic & shipment department since 1995.

I am very proud of being Hazera Staff. I joined Hazera in 2009, Since then I feel like I found my home. I enjoy work with my team in the field. Especially when I have the varieties those selected after my team work in the field."
I advise the growers how to manage our varieties. And exchange the experiences with them. I and my team busy in the fields of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. I always travel by flights, train, car and foots. Sometimes, the field is full of water, so I must wear the big boots. Sometime, the greenhouse is very humid and hot, so I got a free sauna. For consumer, tomato is just a kind of food. For me It is my lover ( I love the most beautiful one, of course). I can talk with him. I ask him: Are you OK in the conditions (cold, hot, diseases presses, and so on) ? Can I help you ? I make the PD plan and budget before the season. I execute the PD plan accordingly. When I see a good variety in the field, I will be very happy. I even put the fruit (it is also the fruit of my work) in my pocket as my baby. Last year, the total sales of Hazera China is more than 7 million Euro, I am one of the contributors. I was born for agricultural. I like to work in the field. Thank you very much Hazera China for given me the opportunity.

The seed industry is interesting, often challenging and always exciting. Being part of Hazera created opportunities for me to experience and enjoy all this while building my career!”
In 1998, Hannes started working in the Vegetable Seeds Industry in South Africa, responsible for seed sales to professional growers. Only after joining Hazera in 2003, his career development really took momentum! Within relatively short intervals, he became the manager of different divisions within Hazera South Africa, until having the privilege of managing the Hazera South Africa subsidiary. “The diversity of responsibilities within Hazera, as well as the trust and support from fellow colleagues and the investment made in my skills development made the difference!” Hazera hasn’t only created growth opportunities for him within South Africa, but also across the border. Today he and his family are based in the Netherlands where he works at the Dutch headquarters as part of the Marketing Team.
