Pacific Ag works across a large expanse of territory, which makes running simultaneous harvest operations a challenge. The skilled labor team at each location is key to running a multi-state harvest. Gabriel Gutierrez is no exception to the important work that is done by the field teams. Currently, Gabriel serves as a Western Kansas region harvest supervisor where he manages client contacts, employees, and a fleet of equipment.
Gabriel, who first came to the United States when he was 18 years old, is always working to improve himself. He describes himself as someone always working to reach the next level by becoming more productive or learning new skills. His disciplined approach is to ensure he can provide for his family, despite any challenges that might come his way.
Over the years, Gabriel has worked for several companies. Some he describes as like working inside a box with no room for growth. He enjoys working when he feels he has a sense of purpose or contribution to the greater good of the organization. Gabriel realizes his value and takes pride in his ability to help Pacific Ag grow into new markets.
When not managing harvest operations, Gabriel is spending time with his wife of 22 years and his 5 children. With his oldest child at 21 and youngest at 2 years old, it’s safe to say he is a seasoned expert in his role as a farther. He enjoys going to church, playing volleyball, and hunting for the occasional buck in Oklahoma. While Gabriel doesn’t think he’s found his American Dream just yet, he’s confident it’s right around the corner. His motivation every morning is that the work he does today will pay off for his family tomorrow.
