Thunder Seed names John Sorby as its new sales director. Sorby brings more than 23 years of seed management experience to the position.

“I’m excited to be working with a family-owned company that has a strong focus on the success of growers in the region,” Sorby said. “The company has three great owners who have deep roots in the area’s agriculture.”

Sorby will help continue to expand the Thunder Seed business throughout North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota. He will work closely with the Thunder Seed team of district sales managers to provide personal support to growers in the area.

Sorby has held positions with several seed companies, including Agsco, WinField and, most recently, Pinnacle Agriculture, where he supported farmers in the northern half of the country, including the Midwest.
