Greenstone Welcomes Nathan Harman; Congratulates Allen Smith

Greenstone welcomes Nathan Harman as Senior Product Manager of BinSight and congratulates Allen Smith as he retires.


Nathan’s role will be instrumental in leading the binSight product roadmap and investment strategies. He will serve as a voice to Greenstone customers by leading the process of designing innovative product solutions to agribusinesses.


Nathan began his career serving as a Gas Turbine Technician for the United States Navy. For the past 13 years, he has worked for an international grain exporter, where he was an Elevator Superintendent and Grain Operations Software Engineer.


“We are thrilled to have Nathan on board, as he will bring a fresh perspective and approach to solutions offered by binSight,” said Steven Day, Greenstone Platform Manager. “Nathan’s career portfolio demonstrates his vast knowledge and experience with the ability to apply practical, cross-functional insights that will deliver robust solutions to our customers.”


Nathan resides in Southwest Iowa. He enjoys spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, ATV/UTV riding, working on the family farm and cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals and Iowa State.


“I am privileged to have the opportunity of growing up on a farm, that shaped and created my love for Ag, operations and technical experiences! I love all that the Ag industry has to offer and still get excited to experience the changes of the industry,” Nathan stated. “I could not be where I am and who I am today without the support of family, mentors, colleagues, and customers from the ag industry. I look forward to the new relationships with our customers and working together on how we can grow and expand the tools of our industry into the future.”


Nathan began transitioning into his role in April under the direction of Greenstone’s retiring Senior product manager, Allen Smith.


Allen Smith originally hails from Wichita, KS and began his career in the ag industry in 1972, working for a full-service cooperative. For 27 years, Allen dedicated himself to the cooperative system performing facility, operations, and general manager positions.


In 2001, Allen made a career move from Kansas to Georgia to begin a new professional adventure. He served as a member of the best software development team for agribusinesses, while using his experience as an industry specialist. Allen later became a Technical Product manager and today serves as a Senior Product Manager for Greenstone.


Allen resides in Canton, GA with his wife, Karen, of 45 years of marriage. Together they have one son and nine daughters, plus ten grandchildren. Allen notes he has no more teenagers. He plans to slow down a bit and do some traveling. We would love to engage more in family activities, which that of itself will be all he can handle. One in particular, is to participate in a few more weddings. Allen has a deep bucket list of honey-do items he would love to catch up on.


Allen’s favorite memory at Greenstone is engaging with many customers one-on-one either on the phone, in person or at conferences. He has loved interacting with individuals that have made the agribusiness industry great.


“I’ve always appreciated the challenges and rewards that have come while working with my customers. My career has been a rich and rewarding experience for me and my family,” stated Allen Smith, Retiring Senior Product Manager at Greenstone.


Allen’s retirement at Greenstone begins at the end of day on May 28, 2021.
