Cam Flowers is the Director of Retail Lending at AgAmerica, joining the company in 2013 with a B.S. degree in food science from Clemson University and deep roots in American agriculture.
Cam is a seventh-generation South Carolinian who grew up working on his family’s tobacco and swine farm. Agriculture has always been a fundamental part of his life. In high school, he won both the state FFA soil judging and farm business management competitions. Today, he operates a small cattle herd in South Carolina with the help of his brother that offers healthy, grass-fed Angus beef to the surrounding local market.
In college, he served as Student Body Vice President where he helped oversee a $2.4 million budget and led a team that raised the Clemson PSA (agriculture) funding by almost 10 percent. This initiative helped refocus Clemson’s emphasis on keeping agriculture a top priority long after he graduated. Other organization memberships he held during his collegiate career included the Tiger Brotherhood, Blue Key Honors Society, Interfraternity Council, and Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity–a fraternity based on the principals of agriculture. His active campus involvement in both academic and agricultural organizations developed his ability to network and build meaningful relationships with those he worked with to implement positive change.
After graduation from Clemson, Cam chose to follow his passion for agriculture and found a company that aligned with his mission to advocate for and support the dreams of American farmers nationwide. As Director of Retail Lending at AgAmerica, Cam leads the retail team in customizing loans to meet the specific needs of the clients they serve. His lifelong experience as a farmer and rancher enables him to take a hands-on approach in ensuring each product is structured in a way that will support the success of his clients’ agricultural operations for years to come.
