Ethan works with family and closely-held agricultural businesses, providing guidance around long-term planning to match family goals for ownership and management. He has expertise with the wide variety of production practices and organizational structures seen across the agricultural industry, derived from his experience and education in production agriculture.
Growing up on a farming and ranching operation in Eustis, Nebraska, Ethan gained hands-on knowledge while working with his family. From row crop farming, hay production, and a commercial Angus cow-calf herd, the production mindset runs deep. He has been recognized for his achievement in family enterprise advising, and holds a Certificate in Family Business Advising (CFBA).
He also brings ten years in a third-party farm and ranch management where he attained a valuable understanding of ownership and succession strategies furthered with clientele from trusts, corporate fiduciaries, charitable organizations, and individual absentee owners. Ethan covered a vast geography with a specialty in managing ranching operations and working with farm tenants in a variety of crop production practices and regions.
Still actively involved with his family operation in Nebraska today, Ethan also continues his production passion as a partner with a cow-calf herd production in Texas.
