Career Talk – Szymon Wilczyński
Our subsidiaries in more than 40 countries make TIMAC AGRO a global company, with a large variety of cultures and crops. But what is the core of our representatives’ work? Being close to the farmers and their needs! During their career, they sometimes meet producers that become friends. That’s the story of Szymon Wilczyński, TIMAC AGRO Polska representative, and of his friend Adam Majchrzak, local producer.
Can you tell us a bit more about yourself and your story?
My name is Szymon Wilczyński. I have been working for TIMAC AGRO Polska for a few years now. As a representative, I had the opportunity to meet new people and, in particular, Adam Majchrzak. Adam runs a farm of about 300 ha and has a herd of 200 dairy cows: at first, he was just a customer, but now I am pleased to say he is a friend.
How did you meet?
I met Adam through my cousin, who is an animal scientist. He first met Adam by helping him with his dairy cows. At the time, I had just started my work as a TIMAC AGRO Polska representative. We decided to organise a meeting at the Rolnik cooperative – whose president was Adam – so that I could present the TIMAC AGRO offer.
Adam had recently had problems with his previous supplier of livestock products: I arrived at the right time to recommend solutions to him.
How did that work out?
Fantastic! We started having business meetings at least 2-3 times a month, where I would advise Adam. But soon, we started talking about other things, our lives, and seeing each other off the farm.
Our spouses got along very well, our dogs too, and it turned out that Adam even had a son and daughter about the same age as my children.
How is your relationship today?
Excellent! We travelled to the mountains together in the spring and climbed snowy peaks. Last month, we even spent a holiday by the sea. Adam had the opportunity to test our new TIMAC AGRO solution for animal nutrition on his farm, where he even made an advert with his wife to present the outcomes of our solutions.
