December 13, 2017

Charleston, MO (December 12, 2017)  Hurley & Associates announces the hiring of Laura Heitkamp as Farm Marketing Consultant.  Laura is a licensed commodities broker and works closely with farm clients’ budgets, cash flow requirements and risk management strategies to work toward a profitable conclusion to each crop year.

 Laura grew up in Southeast North Dakota in a family with strong agricultural roots. She is proud that those roots extend back generations on both sides of her family, in both production agriculture and in agri-business. Laura feels her strong work ethic and sense of community come from growing up in small town, rural America, and from her experience in spending hours fixing fence in the family pasture! She is excited to bring that work ethic, as well as her passion for agriculture and maintaining the family farm, to Hurley & Associates.

Laura attended North Dakota State University, graduating in 2004 with her Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree. She has 13 years of data management, training, and leadership experience in the field of education. She looks forward to utilizing that expertise to support her farmer clients in better understanding commodities marketing to maximize their profit potential.

“Laura is a wonderful addition to our team and we look forward to the added bench strength that will allow us to expand our service in the Britton, SD area," said Trent Hurley, CEO of Hurley & Associates. “Laura brings a passion for agriculture to the table, which will translate to helping her clients reach their goals and grow their operations.  We are very excited to have her in the company and expanding our capacity to help more producers.”
