By Tracy Willits, Vice President - Communications
Without sounding too cliché, it’s safe to say 2020 was quite a rollercoaster, and it is hard to believe that we are already in the second month of this new year. While I am looking forward to all 2021 has in store for us at Pivot Bio, I want to pause and soak up the resiliency of our team as well as the amazing successes we achieved.
One measure of our success is the external accolades we’ve received. This recognition is not by chance. Our team has worked hard to deliver a breakthrough microbial nitrogen product to U.S. growers, drive product demand, ensure customer success, and develop more and even better technology. This inspiring dedication and drive kept things turning, even when it felt like life and work were at a standstill. Because of our team’s efforts, recognition for the work we do and the products we provide to growers were as steady as ever.
I am so proud to be part of a pretty special Pivot Bio team that is focused on agriculture and discovering new tools for growers. From the long list of awards we received, it looks like others believe the Pivot Bio team is pretty special too.

While these awards certainly help amplify and share our mission with others, what’s most important is the opportunity to showcase our team’s impactful work. I am humbled by all of the ways in which we were honored last year, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the entire team at Pivot Bio who made it all possible.
I’m looking forward to another year of reaching new levels with this amazing team. Here’s to a successful and healthy 2021.
