About Verdant Partners
Verdant Partners LLC is recognized as the leading business brokerage and consulting group for agribusiness. Founded in 1998, Verdant’s focus covers the span of crop production agriculture, with transaction experience extending beyond seeds and traits to all facets of crop-based agribusiness. Since 1998, Verdant has initiated and managed successful transactions and alliances valued at more than U.S. $2.3 billion. We advise privately held businesses, public corporations, multinationals, venture and buyout funds, and technology companies throughout the world.
With nearly 500 years of combined professional experience in all crops and phases of the international crop genetics industry, as well as in other sectors of agribusiness, Verdant’s skills are sharply focused and experience-based.
The Verdant team is comprised of professionals located in offices across North America, South America, Europe, and Australia. Each principal came to Verdant from senior management positions within the crop genetics industry or a related sector. The high level of expertise in the areas of finance, biotechnology, field crops, flowers, horticulture, and vegetables facilitates the proper and professional handling of business brokerage and consulting projects in the seed or agribusiness industries.
Success in all areas of agribusiness demands a solid strategic vision and dependable execution of predetermined plans.
The Verdant team provides focus and timeliness to your strategic business planning process while allowing the company business team to keep its attention on day-to-day business operations so that both move forward simultaneously. We manage your strategic planning or other business improvement projects with professionalism and efficiency, drawing on the expertise of internal management and external support to develop deliverables that are designed to specifically meet predetermined objectives.
Verdant utilizes hands-on industry and consulting experience to provide a combination of strategic perspective and tactical operational guidance to its business advisory projects. Each assignment is customized for the crop, technologies, markets and business disciplines necessary to meet the client’s needs. We provide confidential advice and business management direction for privately held companies, public corporations, technology companies, universities and others whose business depends on production agriculture.
