INTERVIEW W/ HOLT AG SOLUTIONS RICK SAPIEN
What is your role at Holt Ag Solutions?
I’m a territory manager! I cover the area from East Avenue in Turlock all the way to Madera. My primary role is to handle equipment sales for our AGCO products and implements.
What is your favorite part about working within the Ag industry? I love the diversity! There’s nothing like pulling up to a stop sign and looking over at the hay fields on one corner and then spotting a tree orchard or a corn field on the other. I love getting to see the diversity within the industry first hand and knowing that in some way, I am a part of it. What is a fun fact about you? I really enjoy old cars. I have a purple ’56 Oldsmobile that I like to drive around. I take my 2-and-a-half-year-old daughter with me sometimes, too. She loves it and gets SO excited to hop in for a drive. Make sure to wave if you see us cruising around! What would you like to share about Holt to someone that might not know what the company does? That we do Ag too! It really helps having a physical location here in Merced, but a lot of people hear Holt and they think of our construction and equipment operations over in Los Banos. Most people don’t realize Holt has an agriculture side!
