National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) reports:

The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) is pleased to announce the winners of the Next Gen NAMA Award. This award, in its third year, was developed to celebrate the next generation of leaders. Honorees are nominated from within their company or through chapter or national leadership.

The recipients for 2019 are Kylee Deniz, National Pork Board; Casey Hushon, Charleston|Orwig; Mollie Dreibrodt, Cargill; and Rachel Schneider, Colle McVoy.

Kylee Deniz is Director of State Marketing and Producer Outreach at the National Pork Board. She is constantly evaluating the value of the National Pork Board's offerings to stakeholders and identifying ways to improve, both quality of work and process.

Deniz accepted additional responsibility at the National Pork Board in a larger role in Domestic Marketing and now serves as lead with the industry's 42 state pork associations. She is active in NAMA and serves on the Iowa Chapter Board as the Website and Social Chair. In this role, she spearheaded new ideas for connecting NAMA members and recruiting new people.

Casey Hushon, Director of Client Services at Charleston|Orwing, Inc., demonstrates an unmatched ability to learn a client's business in order to understand their needs and make strategic marketing communications recommendations.

She builds strong client relationships and employs new and innovative thinking to best serve her clients. She strives to bring efficiency and productivity to the work and the accounts she leads. She is an active Badger NAMA Member and frequently attends both local and national NAMA meetings and events. Hushon also submits entries for the Best of NAMA Awards on behalf of her clients.

Mollie Dreibrodt is a Marketing Specialist at Cargill Animal Nutrition. She recently led the launch of two new products for the company who hadn't seen a new product launch in ten years. In her short time with Cargill, Dreibrodt has become a leader on her team and developed new processes and media monitoring to strengthen their sales.

She helped form a solid foundation to innovate branding and marketing communications. Dreibrodt is active in NAMA and has attended regional and national events. She participates each year in creating entries for the Best of NAMA competition and attends the regional awards banquet for the Southwest chapter.

Rachel Schneider, Associate Account Director at Colle McVoy, is charged with leading core segments of Land O'Lake's agricultural business unit, WinField United - a cornerstone account for the agency. She was a key player in the success of the Land O'Lake's debut at South by Southwest in 2018.

She helped change the perception of WinField United from a regional ag distributor to a nationally recognized brand. Schneider has been an active NAMA member for more than six years and has held multiple positions at the national level including serving on committees for the Agri-Marketing Conference, Best of NAMA and Fall Conference.

The Next Gen NAMA Awards will be presented at the 2019 Agri-Marketing Conference in Kansas City, Missouri. The honorees will receive their awards on Thursday, April 11, at the Sheraton Crown Center Hotel. For more information on the Conference, visit
