Kassidy Kimpling grew up on a grain farm just outside of Streator, IL. She is a proud graduate of the University of Illinois. While there, she studied Agricultural Leadership Education with a focus on sales. In her free time, Kassidy can often be found cheering on Illini athletics.
Even though she remains early in her career, Kassidy has a fairly long history in sales. Her sales career began in high school when she owned and operated a fall decoration business selling mums, planters, pumpkins, gourds, stalks, and variations of those products. During college, she spent one summer as the marketing intern with the Livingston County Farm Bureau, and prior to graduation, she spent some time in Central Michigan being a part of the Monsanto (Bayer) internship program. While working for Monsanto she created a sales training course for educating Channel and Dekalb/Asgrow representatives on selling “value” to their customers. In addition, she also served as the team “technology guru” for applications such as Climate FieldView.
Upon graduation from college, Kassidy started her “full time” career with a move to Iowa to join the Corteva Crop Protection team as an associate territory manager. She spent the majority of her time forging relationships with retail outlets, giving chemical product updates, and creating programs to better serve the growers.
Kassidy’s role as a Sales Representative with Integrated Seed Solutions has allowed Kassidy to make the move back to Illinois and do what she truly loves….. work directly with growers. As a member of the Integrated Seed Solutions team, her role includes many behind the scenes duties. Day to day, you will find her out and about smiling with farmers and dealers. When not with customers, she is building relationships with strategic partners (including suppliers and potential business contacts), creating marketing materials such as handouts, social media, and websites, and assisting in the warehouse. Kassidy brings creative thinking, organization, and an outgoing attitude to the team.
More than anything, Kassidy is excited about truly bringing First Class Value and Customer Service to the growers she works with!!! She believes that in sales, as long as all products and services are truly focused on creating new value for the customers, the “sales” actually make themselves.
