Working in sales for the ag division, what Alan Stenum likes most about Lessiter Media is that it encourages ideas, strives for excellence and is respected throughout the agriculture industry as a media group that puts the audience first. “Pepper that with a few jokes from Frank Lessiter and you have yourself a great place to work,” he says. Alan joined the company in June 2011 and when he’s not meeting with advertisers, he enjoys hiking, canoeing, camping, mountain biking and generally getting out and doing anything he can drag his kids to — kicking and screaming — that he knows they’ll appreciate one day in the distant future.
