VP of TS Ag Finance
Barry joined TS Ag Finance as Vice President in July 2017. Prior to joining TS Ag Finance, Barry was Senior Vice President in the Food and Ag Division at Wells Fargo. Prior to that he was Senior Vice President for the Agribusiness Division at Bank of the West. At both places, Barry developed business on a nationwide basis. He built a portfolio of nearly $600 million consisting of loan commitments ranging from $500,000 to $130,000,000. In addition to providing constructive financing, Barry has always worked with management to ensure their long-term financial strength. He has done this by assisting in the budgeting process and by setting goals to meet key financial metrics.
Barry has spent his entire 38-year career financing farms, ranches and agribusinesses. During that time, he has witnessed first-hand how consolidation, increasing size and vertical integration of agribusinesses has impacted every commodity in agriculture. This has required more hands-on work and understanding on the part of lenders. Barry is proud to be a part of the team at TS Ag Finance and their culture of understanding and supporting production agriculture.
