Huyser is a self-described “Iowa farm kid” growing up in central Iowa on his family’s livestock and row crop operations. This is where his passion for agriculture was instilled. After graduating from Central, Huyser received an MBA from Drake University. His career path led him to the agricultural and construction equipment industry. Huyser joined Lely North America in 2007 as director of sales and operations and is currently president and managing director.
