The Agricultural Business Council of Kansas City looks forward to welcoming Mark Zenuk, Managing Partner of Tillridge to the Council's June luncheon meeting. Mark is pioneering a new approach — private equity has traditionally shunned agricultural investments because of the roller-coaster returns. Mark has long been at the center of agribusiness and high finance and he has assembled some significant investors who are actively investing in agriculture today.
At Tillridge, Mark leverages his global reputation and 25+ years of industry expertise in acquiring and operating large scale assets in storage, processing, packaging, transportation, and merchandising of agricultural commodities and ingredients.
Prior to Tillridge, Mark was a Managing Director at NGP Energy Capital Management (“NGP”) where he led NGP’s agribusiness investment platform. Before joining NGP, Mark served in many domestic and international executive leadership roles with Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM), having most recently led ADM’s largest global business unit with $24 billion in revenues and $1.3 billion in operating profit. Before joining ADM, Mark served as General Manager of the Commodity Marketing Group for the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and Marketing Manager for the Canadian Wheat Board.
Mark received a B.S. in Agricultural Economics from the University of Saskatchewan.
