by Aug 24, 2011International Perspectives


I am pleased to announce Hans Stiekema has joined the Ag Leader organization as the Regional Manager – EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa).  Hans comes to the Ag Leader organization with over 30 years of experience in business development in the agricultural industry.  He has previously worked for manufacturers such as Krone (D), Argo Group (I and UK), Lund (IRL), and Vredo Dodewaard (NL), as well as several distributors of agricultural equipment in Europe.

Together with Paul Rose, International Sales Manager – EMEA, Hans will build the EMEA market by developing existing distributors, establishing distributors in new territories and working with OEM’s in the region.  Stiekema will be adding additional support, service and sales staff to the EMEA operations.


I am very excited to strengthen our presence in the EMEA market.  Ag Leader is making a significant investment in the EMEA region to better serve our current and future customers.

Hans Stiekema and Paul Rose will be attending the Farm Progress Show in Illinois next week.  Please say hello to them when you stop by the Ag Leader booth (Lot 518); they will be the ones with the strange accent.
