Roger Barr’s performance as it is related to the North Texas Cotton Cooperative (NTCC).
Roger Barr is part of the New York credit Committee as an account officer. His main tasks are to review all loan proposals and make decisions and recommendations on proposals up to $1 million.

They are responsible for a lot of things, besides the written goals they have to achieve non-measurable goals such as contribution to a more efficient operational process as well.
