AMVC Management Services, a diversified swine management company, recently graduated nine employees from their Leadership Development Program. Among the graduates is Micaela Walls of Lebanon.
AMVC’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) is designed to develop the next generation of swine production leaders by giving them the skills, knowledge and resources to propel their career with AMVC. Individuals are accepted into this program based on their drive to be in a management position within the company.
Bimonthly these employees attended sessions in Audubon, Iowa, to further develop their soft and technical skills. Time was spent in the classroom and on-farm with company experts to allow for in-depth discussions and explanations.
Walls, a recent graduate of Purdue University, began her career with AMVC in May 2017 by being placed in AMVC’s Accelerated Leadership Development Program. She spent six months in Audubon, Iowa, before beginning work at a sow farm in Crawfordsville.
Over the course of the last year, she participated in a variety of activities to understand all facets of pig farming to better prepare herself for future roles within AMVC.
“We are really proud of our recent Leadership Development Program graduates. The growth Micaela has shown both personally and professionally over the last year is impressive. We look forward to her continuing to grow into a great leader at AMVC,” said Nick Weihs, AMVC Director of Leadership Development.
This is AMVC’s third class to graduate from the program. AMVC Management Services is headquartered in Audubon, Iowa, and manages swine farms across seven states.
