Balancing emotion & logic

Meet Rodney Connor

Rodney has 15 years of experience trading grain, first with Cargill, then with Growmark, and now with Indigo as the Head of Pricing Tools and Services.

He still lives near the farm he grew up on in Dwight, Illinois, and today serves as the president for the town's economic alliance. When not working with his community or advising farmers, Rodney can be found spending time with his wife and three daughters.

Meet Aline Pezente

Aline is a technology entrepreneur bringing 17 years of experience in finance and agriculture, most recently from Cargill, to Indigo Ag as Global Head of Marketplace. She has worked on the ground in both the United States and Brazil to develop business strategy, and has her masters in computer and information technology from MIT. 

As she focuses on the marriage of technology and grain marketing in the Indigo Marketplace product, Aline looks to enable more transparency and efficiency across the entire supply chain.
