About the Authors

Don White has been a visionary and teacher in the grain merchandising industry for over 50 years. He has written and co-authored several books with Sherry Lorton, including the Merchant's Edge which has made a vast impact on country grain elevators and universities across the nation. Major grain companies in the U.S. and Canada have used The Art of Grain Merchandising,  Merchant's Edge and the duo's other books to train their employees to be expert merchants.

As Chairman of White Commercial Corporation, Don White founded the company in 1971 with the goal of providing excellent education in merchandising to agricultural businesses. Over the years Don has put together a team of co-workers who share his vision and desire to help others develop their skills in merchandising.

Sherry Lorton is a Grain Merchandising Specialist and has written or co-authored with Don White ten grain merchandising books including her most recent, The Art of Grain Merchandising, formerly the Merchant's Edge.

Sherry is the Educational Director of White Commercial Corporation and joined the company in 1978 where she learned the skills of merchandising by working alongside some of the best merchants in the business. She has since developed an extensive line of educational programs and materials on grain merchandising for the industry and is the originator of the grain industry's only Grain Certification Course.

In their recent book, The Art of Grain Merchandising, Don and Sherry share the expertise of people who are actively merchandising grain and making a real difference in their businesses and communities.
