Olney, TX – Air Tractor has come a long way from its early beginnings in Olney, Texas. Today, thousands of iconic blue and yellow aircraft can be found working in a variety of roles all across the globe.
The Air Tractor finance team recently partnered with the Dillard College of Business at Midwestern State University to share with students and community members how Air Tractor “took off.”
Finance manager Phil Jeske, portfolio manager Scott Neil and commercial loan officer John Hensley participated in a panel discussion for the 40th Annual Streich Family Lecture Series. The event was part of the school’s annual International Week.
The Air Tractor executives discussed how exporting took a rural Texas company onto the global stage to expand its aircraft sales with a successful export program. The lecture audiences at the event gained an understanding of the economic and business opportunities within local communities and discovered the potential of international connections and innovations.
