Mark Tracy has spent the majority of his career creating innovative financial tools to solve intractable problems.

While at Cargill, Mark and his team changed the way farmers market their crops through unique pricing flexibility. He also managed an institutional sales team at Cargill, working with public pension funds, foundations and endowments investing in aquaculture through crop production loans. Mark led the effort at Cargill to use distributed ledger technology to create digitally traceable food. He serves on the board or committees of Hope Hospice and Palliative Care of New England, Rhode Island Public Health Institute, Save The Bay, and Ocean State Innovate.

Mark is a named inventor on two US patents, and has worked advising startups from Brown and the Social Enterprise Greenhouse for over 10 years.

"Throughout my career, I’ve focused on empowering farmers through innovation, finance, and technology, but Indigo offers something entirely new. It’s refreshing to join a company that was founded on the principle of putting farmers first—where growers are seen as the solution to some of the most pressing environmental problems of our time. Agriculture is long overdue for disruption, and I’m excited to be doing just that at Indigo."
