“Matt has had a successful career in sales agronomy,” said Chris Pearson, interim Board President for FieldReveal and CEO of Wheat Growers. “Matt has been involved in precision agriculture platforms and solutions for the majority of his career and has been a key leader in both sales performance and technology adoption for the organizations he has served. We’re pleased to introduce Matt as the first CEO of the newly launched FieldReveal organization.”

Before joining Trimble, Hesse served four years in Global Technologies by AGCO, managing precision ag software programs. He started his career as an agronomy productions specialist with Agriliance in Sibley, Iowa, where he managed fertilizer, seed and chemical recommendations and implemented precision agriculture programs.
Hesse is a graduate of the Land O’Lakes Executive Agribusiness Program (LEAP) and has an ag-business associate’s degree from Ridgewater College in Willmar.
FieldReveal is a joint venture formed by four agribusinesses — Wheat Growers, Landus Cooperative, Central Valley Ag and WinField United.
