In 2007, Rhonda Caughlin Werner joined Ag 1 Source with her recruiting efforts focused in the South and Eastern United States, becoming a partner to the firm in 2009. She has since been instrumental in the growth for Ag 1 Source as they are now established as the premier Agriculture recruiting firm for this area.

Rhonda recruits for the Agronomy and Seed Industry, which is also where her career in the industry began. Rhonda has many successful years of experience working in sales, management and agronomy roles in the industry she now serves. Because of her hands on experience and knowledge of the industry she recruits for, she knows what it takes to be successful in these roles. She utilizes her experiences everyday in her efforts to find top talent and bring that to her clients.

With clients, Rhonda is focused on providing not only candidates, but a consultant approach to her recruiting. Rhonda works hard to get to know her clients, their culture, what has worked for them in the past and what key traits they want in someone for a particular role. This enables Rhonda to submit only the best matched candidates for a specific role.

On the candidate side of the business, you can be assured that because Rhonda has worked in many of the roles she is recruiting for, she understands the business and the companies in the industry; she is much more than just a recruiter. She quickly becomes a trusted advisor for your career path and future. Building one’s career is not just a one job placement, the relationships Rhonda builds with her candidates spans the years to provide guidance throughout their career.

Working with Rhonda, Ag 1 Source and their methodology on integrity based recruiting, gives both the client and candidate a unique experience. They quickly come to find an open and honest conversation regarding expectations, strengths, weaknesses and total disclosure. For these reasons, Rhonda has long term clients and referrals from previous candidates and clients. She works hard at making the best possible match for both the client and candidate.


Rhonda is a fire-ball of action, always true to her word- if she said she would update me on a certain day, she would, even if she didn’t have “new” information. Looking for a new career is an emotional and perplexing process, but Rhonda walks through it with you, something I’ve never seen in another recruiter. She’s a trustworthy person and I couldn’t recommend her enough.

I don’t know how Rhonda finds me the candidates she does, but she saves me a lot of hassle by just bringing me the cream of the crop. We’ve had great success with Ag 1 Source and Rhonda and she is my one and only go-to person when I have a search.

We would like to thank you for the invaluable contribution you made at the inaugural Women in Agribusiness Summit with your participation in the Conversation with Today’s Ag Leaders and Capturing Career Opportunities in Agribusiness discussions.  Based on the initial feedback we have received from attendees, your session and the overall program was a great success.  The executive team and I greatly appreciate the time you took out of your busy schedule to join us and thank you for sharing your insights and expertise with the attendees at the Summit.  Your support of the Summit and willingness to volunteer your time and energy is greatly appreciated. — Lissa Blake, Event Director, Women in Agribusiness Summit
