Agworld and K·Coe Isom have worked together closely over the last 15 months to develop a more comprehensive solution for the management, planning, operations and financial tracking of grower enterprises. To date, both companies have seen very strong interest from growers and other market parties and have resolved to strengthen their market driven solutions.
As part of that ongoing commitment, and to further improve the joint service offering, Agworld co-founder Matt Powell will leave Agworld to join K·Coe Isom. He will assume a new role as K·Coe Isom’s Global Innovation Leader, leading the firm’s global digital and process transformations and expanding enterprise development for both entities.
Matt Powell: “I see the collaboration between Agworld and K·Coe Isom as key to the development of not only these businesses, but also their clients’ businesses. When Agworld and K·Coe Isom started to offer joint services to grower enterprises, the potential multiplier effect for growers became obvious very quickly. I look forward to contributing to this process even more as part of the K·Coe Isom team.”
With the collaboration between both companies, growers across the United States benefit from the integration of the world’s premier farm management platform with the US’s leading agricultural consulting and accounting organisation. By having financial advisors able to collaborate with growers on their farm data from planning and budgeting all the way through to postseason analysis, growers are able to improve their crop management decisions and ultimately their profitability.
K·Coe Isom CEO Jeff Wald: “We look forward to working with Matt to offer each of our food and agriculture clients the highest possible level of technology innovation and integration, in addition to comprehensive consulting for every stage of business growth. I have no doubt that Matt's new role will strengthen combined Agworld-K·Coe Isom market driven solutions and continue to build the relationship between our companies, in addition to exploring other global technology and service opportunities for K·Coe Isom."
Agworld CEO Doug Fitch: “Although this move is due to the partnership between the two companies, I want acknowledge that Matt's time at Agworld has been instrumental to its success thus far, and we all wish Matt the very best in his new role at K·Coe Isom. I am convinced that having Matt, with his experience and knowledge, join K·Coe Isom in a leadership role will be pivotal to the future success of the strategic digital projects division of K·Coe Isom, as well as to Agworld as their strategic partner.”
