James Burks Steps Down as President of Senninger®; Steve Abernethy Becomes Our New President

Monday, September 10, 2018

It is with mixed feelings that we announce James Burks’ departure as president of Senninger Irrigation, effective September 28. 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, James was instrumental in consolidating Senninger as a global leader in the agricultural irrigation industry. We acknowledge his efforts and are grateful for his unconditional commitment and dedication to Senninger’s success throughout the years. James provided exemplary and highly professional service in our company and we wish him the best of luck as he leaves in support of his family endeavors.

While we will miss James, we are excited to announce that Steve Abernethy has agreed to take on the role of President of Senninger Irrigation. Steve has been a member of the Hunter Industries family for over 23 years and has a deep background in irrigation and distribution throughout the world.

In his time working directly with the Senninger Irrigation team, Steve’s focus has been developing a plan to grow our revenue in alignment with the global agricultural irrigation opportunities. “We are committed to the long-term success of this business unit and are excited to expand our global footprint and teams, consistent with the quality and value of the Senninger Irrigation brand and the Hunter Industries family of companies”, added Abernethy.
