Farm Credit Welcomes Weston as Marketing & Sales Specialist

Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV), a lending cooperative that serves Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland, announced that Matt Weston has assumed the role of marketing and sales specialist. Weston’s home office is the Harrisonburg branch, though he will help meet the marketing needs of the entire Association.

Weston is a Rockingham County, Va. native. He grew up on his family’s small beef cattle farm, where he also raised Boer goats for Rockingham County 4-H activities in his youth, before shifting his focus to football and baseball in high school. Weston graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing Management with minors in Professional Sales and Entrepreneurship.

Prior to joining Farm Credit, Weston worked as a fuel industry sales representative for a local gas company, and as a full-time real estate agent and marketing coordinator for a local real estate firm.

“I am excited to bring experience in marketing, sales and creative communication to my new role. I love great stories and look forward to telling Farm Credit’s story, as well as those of our customer-owners,” Weston shared regarding his new position at Farm Credit of the Virginias.

Laura Staley, Director of Marketing, said, “We are excited to welcome Matt to Farm Credit. His experience in sales and real estate, and knowledge of the rural communities within our footprint will bring great value to our team and the customer-owners that we serve.”

Weston enjoys spending his free time with his wife and newborn son, competing in church and recreational sports leagues and cheering on the Hokies. He also enjoys cooking and trying new recipes, especially Cajun food and barbecue.
