CEO Agrisource Data: Big Data in Ag Panelist
Ben Worley has spent more than a decade in the data collection, analysis and fusion business. As an Air Force officer, Ben was the program manager responsible for standing up and deploying the first Air Force ScanEagle drone program. With thousands of flight hours and years spent managing the operations, logistics and maintenance of various unmanned systems programs, in 2013 he was a natural fit as the COO of VSG-Unmanned, an Atlanta-based aerial imaging and data solutions provider. VSG's target market was agriculture and it was through this exposure that Ben saw the true potential impact that data and IoT could make in the Ag industry. In 2015, Ben left VSG and co-founded AgriSource Data to better serve the Ag market.
Ben received his B.A. and MPA from Valdosta State University prior to entering the United States Air Force. His background includes work in the Defense, Telecommunications, Private Equity, Aerospace and Agriculture industries. He has served on the Board of Directors for several companies including AgriSource Data, Vision Services Group and Glenridge Capital Partners.
