On Monday, February 7, 2022, Lummus Ag Technology announced new roles for three of its leaders.
"Lummus is the world leader of cotton ginning equipment and supplies. It is our long-term goal to not only maintain our leadership position, but to enhance our global market share and to improve revenues and profits. To that end, Lummus is excited to announce several organizational changes
that will help us stay on top and continue to grow and prosper together," Lummus Ag President Rob Kalkowski said.
The following organizational changes are effective immediately:
Russell Sutton (pictured left) will take on the role of VP of Business Development. In this new role, Russell will be responsible for developing and cultivating new prospects and supporting the team in opening new business.
Russell's knowledge of
our business and the cotton industry as a whole will undoubtedly serve him and Lummus well with these new initiatives.

This is an exciting time for Lummus and we congratulate Russell, Daniel and Ross with their new roles. Please stay tuned for additional details.
