OHP, per a press release, has added Katelyn Jones to its team of technical sales managers, effective March 29, 2021.
“We are thrilled to add Katelyn to our team,” says Troy Bettner, OHP head of sales and marketing. “She has industry experience, is well-liked by her peers, and will be an immediate contributor to OHP.”
Jones, a licensed California Pest Control Adviser (PCA) and Certified Crop Advisor (CCA), replaces the retiring Dennis Kern, who leaves OHP after 19 years of service.
“Dennis is an icon in his region and we’re going to miss him,” notes Bettner. “His contributions are a large reason why OHP enjoys the market position we do today. We know Katelyn will continue to represent OHP in the same professional manner.”
Prior to joining OHP, Jones was a sales representative at Harrell’s, a producer and distributor of agronomic products for the turf and ornamental industry. In addition, she has sales experience with Adama Agricultural Solutions and Nutrien Ag Solutions.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from California State University, Fresno. With OHP, she will cover California, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado from her base in Northern California.
“With her diverse background and knowledge of the marketplace, Katelyn will be a valuable resource for her customers,” says Bettner. “She has experience with growers and how to provide marketplace solutions.”
