Winston Samuels '83
Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Maxx Performance
Class of '83
I was raised on a farm in Jamaica and was a very gregarious child, always looking for an opportunity to excel. I had a tough choice, to focus on pursuing track competitively or pursue studying at an advanced level. I decided, with the help of some great sages, to focus on studying. In my role as a director at Monsanto, I was involved in driving innovation across several platforms, participated in bringing new products to market, and lived and worked in several areas of the world. The experience I gained by living and working abroad shaped who I am today. My intention with my family owned company, Maxx Performance, is to drive innovation across the human and animal industry, with a particular focus on immune health and delivery systems.
