Ed Powell, Keynote Speaker at the 2015 RPRU
The Red Power Roundup #RPRU team was pleased to have Mr. Ed Powell appear as a "Harvester Heritage" featured speaker at the 2015 Red Power Roundup at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri on Wednesday, June 10, 2015.
Ed started with the International Harvester Company in the early 1960's in Industrial Sales and later as a Territory Service Manager with the Kansas City, KS District Office. He was key contributor to the development of the Pro-Harvest Support program, launched in 1979 to support Axial Flow combine line. His presentation titled, "Incredible Career / Experiences of an IH Service Representative," included many of his experiences with International Harvester from his early days on the IH "Combine Patrol" to his support of Custom Cutters on the Pro-Harvest Support program for both IH and CaseIH. For many years he followed the harvest from Texas to Montana and Canada as a Pro-Harvest Support representative.
Mr. Powell's appearance was sponsored in part by the Harvester Heritage program, an International Harvester Collectors Club (IHCC) initiative.
