Derrick literally understands what it takes to fill your boots every day to manage both farm and ranch operations and has been known to work in ‘acres not hours’ to ensure his operations thrive. But he also understands the importance of applying business principals to his operations so that better decisions can be made, and more productive results can be captured.
His love for agriculture was born as well as made. Growing up on a dairy and row crop operation, Derrick then spent five years in corporate FP&A and seven years as CFO for a row crop operation. This full perspective is what he credits to his ease with helping producers fully understand their financial picture and crop level profitability to make better operational decisions and minimize risks.
Derrick works with the producers to understand their operational strategies and ownership goals and then helps them build a financial plan and strategy to achieve them. His honed skillsets in analysis, strategy, and process implementation have aided producers with data flow and enabled them to leverage their financial and operational data to build greater value and be more profitable.
