Hi, my name is May Norris and I work within the Digital Media Marketing team at AGCO, based in the UK. I joined AGCO just over a month ago after receiving the fantastic news that I had been accepted as an apprentice!
I was born in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire and lived there for 9 years. Then in 2004 we relocated to Cheshire, as my Step-Dad who also works for AGCO changed offices. I am now living in Coventry after moving here in 2006.
While at school I studied hard and achieved many high GCSE results. I then went onto Sixth-form where I studied photography, art and product design. All the courses I completed all had a creative side, which is why I wanted to join the digital media team.
Since joining AGCO I have been involved with many tasks that the digital media team have to oversee each day, this includes, adding news articles onto the Massey Ferguson website and updating contents, adding images and press releases onto Asset Bank and keeping everything organised and running efficiently, and visiting shows and dealers to learn more about the agricultural background.
It’s very exciting for me, as I’m the first apprentice to be part of the digital media team here at AGCO, UK. Each day I arrive at AGCO, I am presented with new challenges which helps me build up knowledge and understanding about how the company works as a team and with others.
I hope, over the next few years while I’m still training, I am a great help and asset to the digital media team here at AGCO.
Hi, my name is Caroline Coarsey, intern for Massey Ferguson high horsepower tractors. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Agricultural Communication and have been with AGCO since June 2011. Growing up in south Georgia in a farming family, I have had the opportunity to see how important agriculture is to our economy. My dad farms row crops and his passion for farming and growing something healthy is a passion that has been passed down to me. We eat every day and that food comes from our farmers in local communities where every day there is something new to fix or another crop that needs more irrigation. It is because of farmers like my dad that I love working in this industry and I’m grateful that AGCO gives me this opportunity.
I am joining AGCO to report on the North American wheat harvest. In the fall, I’ll begin my junior year at Oklahoma State University, where I am majoring in agricultural communications and minoring in agronomy.
Raised in a custom harvesting family, I’ve spent many hours in the cabs of our Gleaner combines as we traveled across the Midwest. My harvest experiences have cultivated a passion for the men and women who harvest the grain that feeds the world and for the products that make it all possible.
Wheat harvest is in my blood, but I am a little bit different than the average harvester. I want to share our stories with you. I will be giving you the ins and outs of the wheat harvest run and how AGCO products make harvesters’ lives easier and more profitable. Stay tuned!
I am a graduate in Social Communication, with a postgraduate degree in Strategic Communication and MBA (in progress) in Marketing Management. I am born in Porto Alegre, in southern Brazil, and currently live in Sao Paulo, one of the largest cities in the world. My grandparents always had farm and cultivated tobacco and maize in Rio Grande do Sul and I grew up watching the evolution of machines and of Brazilian agriculture. At AGCO, I am responsible for web, new media and social medias in South America for Massey Ferguson, Valtra and Challenger brands. I am working in AGCO since 2006 and had worked in areas such as Sales Engineering and Technical Publications and now I’m in Corporate Marketing.
