Troy Horton is the new Burrus IT specialist but he carries more titles than that. He is a computer wizard, a problem solver, an office manager, and just a general go-to guy. We are glad to have him on the team. Troy brings a wealth of experience after working at State Farm Insurance for many years as a technical and project lead, as well as a lead analyst.
Troy received a Bachelor degree from Western Illinois University, Macomb, IL in both Agricultural Science and Computer Science. He also has completed course work towards his Master's degree in Entomology from Purdue University, Lafayette, IN. While at Purdue he was a Graduate Research Assistant and worked at the Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center. So Troy brings an agricultural knowledge to compliment his computer skills. It's a great combination to assist Burrus as we move forward.
Troy resides in Petersburg with his wife, Carrie. They have two daughters Kaitlynn, 19 and Baylle, 14 along with one son, Jacob, 10. They enjoy spending time together doing outside activities like hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking.
We are pleased to have Troy onboard. You can rest assured that the Burrus team is working hard each day for our customers' benefit.
