ProGro Bio appoints new executive

Atlanta-based ProGro BIO has named Jimmy Joyner President of Commercial Strategy. He will lead the company's efforts to commercialize ProGro's cornerstone microbial soil inoculant Rhizol. Rhizol is an all-natural microbial solution that stimulates plant growth and protects plants from soil-borne fungal and bacterial pathogens and numerous species of plant parasitic nematodes.

Jimmy Joyner is a 4th generation farmer, entrepreneur, agricultural product developer, and innovator. Joyner's long history in the farming industry includes personally owning and operating large, successful farming operations in cotton, soybeans, and wheat. As a crop consultant, Joyner has provided insight and guidance to growers encompassing over 10,000 acres. In the 1990s, Joyner began full-time efforts in biotechnology product development and engineering, which ultimately led to the founding of US BioTec, a company that he took public in 2004.

"The agricultural sector is seeking chemical-free microbial solutions that actually work and which are backed by solid science. Jimmy's incredible real-world experience in bringing agricultural products to market and working directly with growers of all sizes is an enormous value to ProGro," said Blake Young, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer. "Jimmy's role will include responsibilities for go-to-market and distribution strategies to introduce RHIZOL, ProGro's cornerstone product, across various channels."

"I'm very happy to join ProGro's executive team," stated Jimmy Joyner. "ProGro's well-documented science and the field results behind its revolutionary Rhizol product clearly demonstrate the huge potential that the company has to be disruptive in the AgTech sector."
