From Our Staff
It's awesome to work for WGA because we support one of the only industries left in the world that still has multi-generational, family-owned companies. — Bryan Nickerson, Business Development Manager, Western Growers
I’ve always liked working for Western Growers because of the people. We have a very family-oriented atmosphere and I think our members can see that we really care about them. — Sandy Hopkins, Claims Supervisor, WGAT
The Western Growers Family of Companies exists for one reason: to ensure the future viability of its members – the hard-working, salt-of-the-earth farmers who grow the fruits, vegetables and tree nuts that feed our nation. But their way of life, their ability to pass their multi-generational farms and family legacies on to their children and grandchildren, is being jeopardized by a host of threats, many of them beyond their control. They face a growing litany of laws and regulations that make it increasingly difficult and expensive to do business.
Our members depend on us to help them remain competitive and profitable in spite of these trying circumstances, which we do by fighting – heart and soul – for them every single day. We passionately advocate for them in the halls of Congress and on the steps of the state capitol. We actively facilitate the advancement of technology designed to help them become more efficient and less dependent on diminishing resources. We diligently provide health insurance to their farm workers, as well as other insurance solutions tailored to the unique business. We do all of this, and more, from a position of leadership in the agriculture industry, which requires a team of intelligent, inquisitive and innovative individuals dedicated to our common purpose.
Western Growers is looking for smart, curious, and talented individuals with a spirit of resourcefulness and helpfulness. We are looking for professionals who are fascinated with our purpose and interested in growing within our organization. The Western Growers family is driven by a common bond, each of us contributing our unique talents to provide the agricultural industry with a unified lobbying voice, as well as innovative legal, financial, consulting, training, and insurance services. Since 1926, Western Growers has helped our members thrive in an increasingly complex and challenging global marketplace. If you’re looking to build your career with an organization that rewards curiosity, creativity, and innovation, then Western Growers is the place for you.
