S&W Seed Chairman To Retire

S&W Seed Company’s Grover Wickersham who serves as chairman of the board intends to retire prior to the end of 2014.
In 2008, Wickersham led the purchased of S&W Seed Partnership, which was a California company that bred and marketed high quality, non-dormant alfalfa seed. He was also instrumental in the acquisitions of Imperial Valley Seeds in 2012 and Seed Genetics International in 2013, and he assists in international sales.
During Wickersham’s tenure as chairman, revenues increased more than 10-fold as S&W became the world’s leading supplier of non-dormant alfalfa seed varieties and a global agricultural company with operations in the United States and Australia and distribution to more than 20 countries.
Once a new chairman is chosen, Wickersham will continue to serve S&W as a director and advisor
