Behind the Scenes with Ben Soliev

Behzod “Ben” Soliev, a native of Uzbekistan, joined Valley® Irrigation in 2011 as an international project manager, working to build Valley site capabilities and optimize global supplies. 

He manages projects for international irrigation, mainly operation- and business-development projects such as locating future plant sites, start-ups, developing new standards for our international sites and knowledge sharing. 

Ben also supports the supply chain for our international locations.

“I like that Valmont®, and Valley in particular, is a multinational company with offices and plants around the world,” Ben says. “It makes me proud to work with the great people of Valmont. 

"I also enjoy meeting new people outside of company and being able to develop and implement new business opportunities, while – at the same time – being able to improve my international business expertise.”

Ben is a co-founder and the first president of the newly created Valmont Professional Network that focuses on attracting and developing top talent through professional development, community involvement and networking.

In his free time, Ben likes traveling and exploring new places, talking over Skype with his family in Uzbekistan, hanging out with friends, watching movies and documentaries, and reading books.
