What do you like most about working for Seaboard Overseas and Trading Group?

The qualities that drew me to SOTG are the reasons I stay and why I enjoy my job. SOTG works in a variety of industries—milling, animal raising, commodity trading, etc. and since starting with Seaboard I have had three jobs. With the travel, variety of responsibilities, and knowledgeable people I’ve worked with in SOTG, I always have something interesting on my plate. I have always been made to feel that my contributions are valuable and that SOTG wants to invest in my future.

How would you describe the company culture?

SOTG employs a diverse workforce, and our culture values respect for each other and the communities in which we operate. We are fortunate to be a significant food resource for many regions worldwide, and it is a responsibility that SOTG understands and respects. This responsibility is assumed by the talent that SOTG employs which is why our cohesive culture is important and apparent in our day-to-day work.

What do you enjoy most about working for Bolux Group?

I enjoy the depth and complexity of the issues we grapple with on a day-to-day basis. Working for Bolux Group is far better than attending MBA classes. Most of the business scenarios that are taught in business schools play out here, and I’ve been fortunate enough to experience them first hand. Botswana is also my home country, and it is a very peaceful country to reside in.

What important values do you think Bolux Group delivers on?

I think that Bolux Group’s values include:

  • Innovation
  • Customer Service
  • Teamwork
  • Honesty
