Sep 10, 2018Senninger Irrigation welcomes new president
Steve Abernethy has agreed to take on the role of president of Senninger Irrigation. Abernethy has been a member of the Hunter Industries family for over 23 years.
In his time working directly with the Senninger Irrigation team, Abernethy’s focus has been developing a plan to grow revenue in alignment with global ag irrigation opportunities.
Abernethy takes over for previous president James Burks.
“It is with mixed feelings that we announce James Burks’ departure as president of Senninger Irrigation, effective Sept. 28,” the company wrote in a release. “After 35 years of serving the agricultural irrigation industry, including 22 years with our company, James leaves Senninger to provide support to his immediate family.”
During his 12 years as Senninger’s president, the company said Burks was instrumental in consolidating Senninger as a leader in the agricultural irrigation industry.
