After 35 years in the industry, Dennis Busby, owner of Busby Brokerage, retired in late September.

Busby started his Shawnee, Kan.,-based company in 1989, on Sept. 26, the day he retired.

He is looking to move on to other things outside of the industry. Busby plans to stay involved in the Shawnee community after his retirement. He is involved with the Shawnee Sister City Program.

“The people in the industry are incredible to work with,” Busby said. “They are incredibly brilliant at what they do.”

He also said that the people in the produce industry are very helpful and friendly, and he’ll miss them.
