Company: Farm Country, Inc/Big Game Hunter
Location: Sulphur Springs, Texas, United States
Rick Frazier, CEO at Farm Country, Inc, and Big Game Hunter, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in agriculture and farming.
Mr. Frazier grew up in the car business as his father was involved in that for 26 years, but found during his teenage years that it didn’t hold his interest. Instead, he gravitated to agriculture as he had been influenced in this industry by his grandparents and one of his uncles who were in dairy. In addition, Mr. Frazier worked with his uncle who was a veterinarian for the last two years of his high school experience. After graduation, he began working at a dealership. In 1981, this dealership became available to the market, prompting him to purchase and rename it Farm Country, Inc. Originally the business revolved around dairy farmers, but through the passage of time, the company became more diversified. In 1995, Mr. Frazier took over as CEO of the company while the gross then was $4.5 million. Under his leadership and expertise, that number had risen to more than $30 million in revenue by 2016. He had successfully cultivated a reputation for honesty and in providing parts and services that were key for the increase of the business. Farm Country, Inc became the dealer for top of the line agricultural and industrial companies. Other companies could not match the diversification and quality of services of Mr. Frazier’s company.
When Mr. Frazier is not working, he is hunting. Coming from a long line of hunters before him, he started at six years old with his father. He is a very accomplished outdoorsman and holds lifetime membership to the NRA, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and Safari Club International. Furthermore, Mr. Frazier has accumulated many awards from SCI, such as the Zenith Award, and endeavors to chase the record book for as long as he is able. With Farm Country, Inc, Mr. Frazier is grateful for the opportunities the company opened him too. He is proud of his work and the performance of the company is a point of happiness for him. As his tenure comes to a close, Mr. Frazier reflects that he did it his way.
In addition to overseeing the sales force and the business, Mr. Frazier has been instrumental in his community. Farm Country supports many events annually but the biggest investment they make in the community is with the junior livestock shows. School-aged kids raise steers, heifers, goats, lambs, and pigs to compete in the show. Most of these kids are trying to raise money for a college education. They learn a lot about responsibility and managing money.
