Sean Neal, Director, Accounting and Finance

He graduated from Washington State University with a degree in finance after which he pursued a career as a financial advisor. Following his stint with Edward Jones Investments he found an opportunity to work for his alma mater, WSU, where he worked in various capacities including payroll, treasury, and modernization. Following his tenure at WSU, he came to the McGregor Company where he worked as Controller before transitioning to his current role of Director, Accounting and Finance.

Heath Druffel, General Manager, Retail Operations

Heath was raised on the family farm in Colton, WA where he learned the value of hard work, perseverance, and integrity. After graduating from the Ag Program at Walla Walla Community College, Heath knew a successful career with The McGregor Company would need to start at the beginning. In 1995 he began work in the Walla Walla and Touchet Valleys as a Service Technician and continued learning as much as he could about the business from both customers and colleagues. An active seeker of new challenges, Heath, a Certified Crop Adviser, has taken on greater responsibility throughout his career though never forgetting his roots as a farm boy or the lessons learned in his earlier roles with the company.
