Our Team

Message from the Director of SI EQ, Alex Hanes:

Growing up learning how to live off the land in rural Mississippi, I have a deep appreciation for what owning a John Deere can mean - from enjoying the outdoors on a S100 to nurturing and protecting crops with a 412R. 

In the hiring process, our main goal is to find and cultivate a team whose sole purpose is to marry their knowledge and their passion for their clients’ work in order to result in a successful partnership between agency and dealer. 

We believe we’ve found that magical combination and we’d like you to meet them.
