Retained Executive Search for Modern Agriculture

With 20 years of Agribusiness experience behind us, we have done executive search for virtually every aspect of agriculture and the universe of food processing including modern agriculture, agribusiness, agriscience, and organic/inorganic food processing. As we say… everything from dirt to the dinner plate.

The task of feeding the world is becoming increasingly complex and international in scope. Our Agribusiness Practice Group is comprised of executive search consultants with deep expertise in this sector. Within the Americas, we have consultants from Atlanta to Sao Paulo and globally from Amsterdam to Singapore.

We provide executive recruitment services to secure talent in any area of modern agriculture to include agribusiness, ag-technology, precision agriculture and the organic or inorganic food chain. We have deep relationships across the ag sector formed through years of experience recruiting functional managers to executive leadership talent.

Client Testimonials


More than 65% of our executive search business comes from repeat clients. Here’s what some of our agribusiness and ag-tech clients are saying about us:


Our market in North America is very niche and even more so in Mexico. We go to The ExeQfind Group for their knowledge and grasp of market intelligence. We engaged them for a highly sensitive search requiring discretion and the results were beyond our expectations.

Their deliverables included a detailed talent map along with insights into key people in our industry that allowed us to make an informed decision that I can say three years later has paid off in spades. We will definitely engage them again when the need arises.

President/CEO, Americas

Global Agricultural Equipment Manufacturer


We have used The ExeQfind Group and their global partners to place the President of our North American business unit along with key agronomy and research staff in Texas, Mexico and Australia. Warren and Sam were thorough, gave us the detail we needed to make a decision and six years in we still have each person hired.
