The National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) has announced that Ed Peck, President and Owner of Filament, has been selected as the 2018 NAMA Marketer of the Year.
This recognition is the most prestigious honor awarded to an active member of the association and recognizes outstanding accomplishments in the field of agri-marketing. The NAMA Marketer of the Year award will be presented during the Second General Session of the 2018 Agri-Marketing Conference on Thursday, April 12, in Kansas City, Missouri, and is sponsored by Agri Marketing magazine.
Ed Peck founded Filament with the sole focus of staying involved in the agricultural industry and to be a conduit for clients. Thirteen years later, the agency has grown from a single-man shop into a forty- person enterprise with over twenty-five clients.
As a dairy and beef cattle owner himself, Peck immerses himself in the agricultural industry and the daily fluctuations which affect the livelihood of those farmers around him, as well as the companies who serve them. Peck encourages his team members to stay involved in the agricultural industry - whether it’s with their own farms or industry organizations and causes. Employees are encouraged to attend industry events.
Outside of the agricultural industry, Peck is passionate about encouraging employees to participate in professional development so team members continue to grow together as a business and expand their marketing expertise and knowledge.
Peck has been an active member of the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) for decades. Involved at both the regional and national level, he has spoken at regional NAMA events and is a regular judge for National Best of NAMA. He also supports employee memberships and involvement in the organization.
