Mr. Fertilizer Financier

About Me:

Originally from a blue-collar agricultural community, I went to a small private university before working in investment banking. After banking I decided to help my Dad run the family fertilizer company. I’ve worked with CEOs, bankers, farmers, and factory workers. I’ve seen the need to learn what motivates others and be adaptable to environments.

Big Life Wins:

I went to a non-target school and didn’t know about investment banking until my junior year. Despite this, I found a way to earn a job at a reputable middle market bank. After banking, I went to work for my family’s fertilizer company leading strategic growth initiatives. In this, new market sales have grown by over 110% in the past three years.

Post MBA Goal:

There is a debilitating lack of continuity between our production-based and service-based regions that must be fixed in order to usher in the next era of American commerce. In this, I want to strengthen United States agri-food supply chains and nutrition programs. I want to put myself among the best and brightest minds as I work towards this goal.
