After a few years with IBM, Brent’s father, Bill, and Industrial Engineer by training, started a pig genetics company in 1973. Over the years the company has grown with mergers and acquisitions, bringing on new European partners. So when Brent was getting his MBA, someone got really creative and gave him the nickname, “Pigboy.” But of course he is all grown up now, so he just goes by “Pig.” In 2008, Brent’s family sold the pig company to a French multi-species genetics company (Broilers, layers, pigs, shrimp, and ducks). Brent still works for the company and is currently COO at Choice Genetics USA. They have 8 subsidiaries in different countries and conduct business in 25 countries around the world.
Brent is also a competitive road and cyclocross racer. Brent and his wife, Cindy have a daughter, Logan 13 and two sons, Quinn 9 and Drake 5. Crazy fun facts: The two boys and Cindy share a common birthday.
“When you have children, you hate to see them suffer in anyway. So when you hear of the crimes against children in human trafficking, it really hits you at your core, and you want to do all you can to rid the world of this horrific problem,” state Brent and Cindy. As part of the BTC00 Board, Brent’s role is to lead corporate sponsorship. In this role, we want to create awareness of the problem, and let people, locally know what BTC200 is trying to do about it. In this country, we are all so very blessed. As stated in Luke 12:48, “To whom much is given, much is expected.” If you feel compelled to help, we would love to have you part of our BTC200 Team to help fight this problem. God bless.
