Story

“I feel so fulfilled whenever I see farmers smile and say: 'Thank you East-West Seed for the high quality seeds. Because of your company, I was able to send my children to college and build our own house."

Mike works closely with farmers and has been able to build a good relationship with them over the years of working with East-West Seed. 

He started as a Plant Pathologist in East-West Seed Philippines in 1999. A few years later, he decided to change path to enter the world of Sales and Marketing. In 2006, he went back to East-West Seed as Regional Sales Manager in the Visayas Region and eventually as Product Manager. 

Mike describes his work as managing products from “cradle to grave”. Their team is responsible for the introduction of products to the market and for helping farmers learn how to maximize these products to make them successful.
