AgriLabs is pleased to announce the hiring of Robert Rust as technical service manager effective June 1. As a veterinarian, Rust will be responsible for providing technical support to AgriLabs customers and the sales and marketing teams. In addition, he will be tasked with continuing to grow business relationships within key groups (veterinary practitioners, consultants, producers and distributors) in the large animal business segment.
“Dr. Rust is a great fit for AgriLabs; he brings a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge to this role,” says Sean O’Hare, executive vice president of AgriLabs. “Not only has he provided solutions for our customers in the animal health industry, he has had experience with cutting-edge research at Kansas State University and shares our common passion for innovation.”
Rust was most recently the owner and veterinarian of Green Valley Veterinary Services in Wamego, Kan. Through his experience developing a successful business he has gained valuable knowledge about and insight into the education and product needs of practicing veterinarians and producers alike.
He will be responsible for providing technical support for AgriLabs products, providing technical input for new and existing programs, monitoring clinical field studies, and following up with producers on adverse reactions and technical inquiries.
“I am excited to join AgriLabs to embark on a new phase in my veterinary medical career,” Rust says. “AgriLabs is on the forefront of some cutting-edge technologies. I look forward to joining the team and being part of a growing company that is truly providing innovation to our animal health industry.”
Rust and his wife, Tracie, have 12 children, with seven still at home. They will continue to reside in Wamego, Kan.
