On this special episode of the Landus GROW Podcast, hosts John King and Ashley Kaldenberg welcome special guest, Landus president and CEO, Matt Carstens. If you missed the Landus annual meeting, this is a perfect opportunity to hear the highlights with additional candor and commentary direct from Matt. This brief session includes a recap of the board of directors election results and perspective on the importance of the election process.
John and Ashley then jump right into the past fiscal year’s success and opportunities. Matt shares in depth the key areas of success and what he felt drove last year’s numbers. From top-line growth to strategic spending to improved supply position, all areas of Landus contributed to the overall company’s success and therefore the $8 million total payout to farmer-owners. Take a listen for the key drivers for achieving these results.
Full of authentic perspective and fun moments, we hear Matt’s most memorable moment from 2022 and how it takes him back to his childhood recollections of the cooperative system he now leads.
As is the Landus Way, the podcast shifts quickly to looking to the future and how we continue to build on success. Matt offers insights into the areas of focus for the upcoming year and what Landus will be concentrating on to most positively impact our farmer-owners for the future!
