Trent Bishop Vice President of Sales
Trent Bishop is a 1994 graduate of Texas A&M University, where he earned a degree in Agricultural Economics with an emphasis on Agri-Business. Although he did not grow up in an agricultural family, Trent decided after high school to pursue a career in agriculture because as he saw it, "everyone will always need fresh food to eat". So with that simple idea in his head, he set out on a career path that has now spanned 20 years. Throughout his career, Trent has been very fortunate to work side by side with some of the most well-respected industry leaders in South Texas. He credits these individuals with instilling in him a work ethic based on honesty, integrity and building long-lasting relationships.

"We learned a great deal at last year's conference about what the industry wants and needs from this event," said TPA Chairman Trent Bishop. "Based on that, we're planning a convention in Nogales that gives the participants real take home value, whether they're grower/shippers in Mexico or receivers in the U.S. We see the ATP as a high quality, precisely targeted gathering that helps solve problems, explores new business opportunities, and gives those who attend a heightened level of confidence in their ability to profit from produce trade between our two nations," Bishop said.
