Longtime Farm Pilot Project Coordination (FPPC) Manager Bob Monley Retires

Tampa, FL, June 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Bob Monley has announced his retirement after serving nearly nine years as general manager of FPPC, Farm Pilot Project Coordination, a leader in agricultural conservation and technology research.

”Our many advancements in developing clean water and nutrient management technology would not have been possible without Bob’s expertise and commitment to conservation in agriculture,” said FPPC founder and chairman Richard Salem. “Because of his contributions, FPPC can now offer cost saving technologies that are green energy efficient while also increasing profitability on the farm.”

Monley’s career spanned more than 40 years, and included extensive management experience serving agri-business as well as the mining, defense and nuclear utility industries. Prior to joining FPPC in 2004 he was plant manager responsible for operation of the nation’s largest commercial fuel fabrication facility for Westinghouse in Columbia, SC.

“It has been an honor to work in an organization committed to development of green energy technology that benefits our environment and improves profitability in agriculture,” Monley said. “My work at FPPC has been rewarding, not only because of our advancements, but also because of the many people I have met who share our concerns, including educators, regulators, farmers, conservationists, agri-business leaders, researchers and technology providers.”

Members of the FPPC Advisory Board also praised Monley’s contributions to the organization.

“We will miss Bob’s technical expertise, guidance and professionalism which he used on numerous occasions to help us understand and navigate our way through a number of complex issues related to the work we do to solve environmental problems associated with animal agriculture,” said Lawrence Clark, FPPC Advisory Board Member and former Deputy Chief for Science and Technology for the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). “The Advisory Board wishes you and your family a happy retirement for your hard work, support and encouragement.”
