“Wayne and Paul were some of the first people I met in this industry as we provided radio content for WILL out of Champaign, Illinois,” says Matt Bennett, co-founder of AgMarket.Net®. “They taught me a great deal about the markets and how to articulate the message I wanted to get across on the airwaves. Jon, Wayne and Paul all bring a wealth of knowledge and experience which will benefit the AgMarket.Net® team greatly.”

Nelson, branch manager of the New Market office, is an Illinois farm kid who graduated from the University of Illinois. His career experience includes time as a grain merchandiser, crop insurance agent and commodity broker. Coolley is an AP of the New Market office. The Eastern Illinois University graduate has more than 40 years of experience within the commodity business, which included a position as a branch manager at the Oakland, Illinois location.

He has also worked as a grain merchandiser in the past. Hester is an AP in the New Market office. The Indiana farmer is a graduate of Indiana State University. He has more than 20 years of experience in the commodity business and was formerly a teacher.
