Retirement of Neel Reynolds and Jerry Broome
After 39 years of dedicated service to The Reynolds Company, Neel Reynolds is retiring. Neel is setting his sights on much-needed time with his family and friends. He attributes his work ethic to his father, the founder of The Reynolds Company. Neel began working in the plant as a teenager and joined the business after graduating from the College of Charleston. He, like many others, had the opportunity to grow with the business over the four decades. He worked for many years as the Vice President of Manufacturing. In April 2019, Neel was promoted to President to continue the family heritage. He was then promoted to President and CEO in 2020. Now Neel is ready for new challenges.
Jerry Broome, Vice President of Operations and Purchasing, is retiring after a 42-year career here at The Reynolds Company. Jerry grew up in South Georgia and graduated from Presbyterian College. He joined the US Army Reserve and began working with an AG-coop responsible for buying and selling AG products. His career began with Reynolds in 1981. Mr. Reynolds saw his potential and mentored him. Jerry says, “We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn our business practices from Hays Reynolds, our company’s founder. Hays was a “Greatest Generation” WWII veteran and lived life and practiced business by the Golden Rule. His influence continues to be a big part of our company’s culture today. I am blessed and happy to have worked for The Reynolds Company.” Jerry intends to spend time with his family, boating and fishing.
