New Country Organics: A Message from CEO Jim Campbell

By now, some of you will have heard our news: New Country Organics is expanding to Texas and the southwest. While there is certainly a business case for our expansion (more on that below), as a company we are dedicated to being an active part of creating new – and supporting existing – organic economies. Not only do we work to create more organic acreage, we participate in and help nurture emerging, vital, socially responsible economies based on the development, use, integration and expansion of organics. Now over the years, I've been blessed by a rewarding career working for large and successful companies. I’ve had the chance to work on projects all over the world and during some of the most exciting and challenging times of the past few decades – from the collapse of communism to recovery from the Great Recession. Despite all this, there is no place I'd rather be, right now, than bringing our small firm, New Country Organics to America's southwest, with our recently announced acquisition of the assets of Economy Mills in Lubbock Texas.

 Most senior professionals are lucky enough to find meaning in their work that goes beyond the proverbial pay check, as it takes a huge amount of personal commitment, focus and abundant energy to be a success in those kinds of large corporate roles. And yet, how many of us can truly find meaning in what we do?  How many of us are nervous about giving up the big corporate role and trying something very different? I left financial services in 2014, and took a pay cut to do it.  I haven't regretted it for a moment.   Not only is there the huge thrill of running a small company, with all the excitement of building and shaping it and trying to navigate around the ever present rocks in the water, there is the reward of seeing other people in the company grow and change, and realize that they have a chance to make a difference with their work. It helps of course that our small firm has a strong social mission.  It is a for-profit enterprise, but we can only commercially succeed if we first address our social…
