Q: Your career with Monsanto appears to be fulfilling over all. Is there any other company you would have benefited from more, or do you wonder what other direction you might have chosen?
A: There are several outstanding companies that would have been good choices for a career. Given the changes that Monsanto was considering, how they re-organized, and my timing in joining the company, I happened to be at the right time and place, and with the right background. I was given every opportunity and I had a wonderful career with an outstanding company, and I had a number of mentors who provided me every opportunity to learn. There are always “bumps in the road,” mine was no exception.
