Foster holds ultimate responsibility for company performance in product development and manufacturing, marketing, sales, human resources, operations and logistics, financial management and other business functions. His new role follows a transition period during which longtime President Tracy Jarman and Director of Sales Andy Moore have been shifting from operational duties to help guide strategy as Directors on Aquatrols’ Executive Board.

Following its acquisition by Rural American Fund in 2015, Aquatrols has expanded the leadership team, streamlined operations, instituted an aggressive research and development plan, and expanded product distribution.

Foster brings to Aquatrols 25 years’ experience in the green industry where he was most recently Global Director for Plant Health at chemical manufacturing giant FMC. He was also a golf course superintendent, a pedigree aligned with use of Aquatrols products on thousands of courses, including hosts of major championships, the Ryder Cup and 2016 Olympics.

“It is a big honor – not many people get to lead a 62-year-old American company with a stellar reputation for reliably preventing and solving growers’ toughest challenges,” says Foster. “We will continue to expand invaluable technologies in and adjacent to our leadership in soil/water interactions.”
