A large agricultural lender just announced opening of a new office in Evansville. Rabo AgriFinance officials say the new office will provide financial services in an area of the Midwest where their business is growing. Rabo AgriFinance is based in St. Louis.
The new office is the fourth in the Ohio Valley region. It will be staffed by two veterans – Eric Reed and Glenn Lewis.
Reed is classified by the company as a relationship manager, and will be the lead person in the office. He has 20 years of experience in ag financing. His specialty areas include cattle production, poultry (a growing part of the economy in southwest Indiana), and crop production. Hogs continue to remain a big part of the economy in that region as well.
Lewis will be the senior relationship analyst in the new Evansville office, spokespersons say.
Bob Fulling, regional vice-president for the company, says having these two people working near southwest Indiana and Kentucky will help them become the premier lender in the area. The two people who will be in the office, Reed and Lewis, bring a combined 35 years of experience in ag finance to the table, Fuller says.
Rabo AgriFinance does more than just loan money to farmers. They also make loans to businesses in agriculture and other fields. The company has a research division, and published a wide variety of information related to the financial and business world, particularly for agriculture, geared to be a service for their customers. The company also offers crop insurance to farmers who want to do business in lending and crop insurance with the same company.
