Blake harnesses the power of business analytics, translating accounting reports and financial data into valuable and actionable information for ag business owners. From market research, benchmarking, and needs assessment to annual crop budgets and breakeven analysis, Blake unveils the complete picture of an operation so those providing food to the world can make sound financial decisions.
Adept at discovering meaningful patterns in real-time business data, Blake communicates these insights to growers, improving their profits and overall efficiency. He bridges the gap between farm operations and accounting principles, giving producers more time to focus on what they love–farming.
The truth is you can’t understand the ag business without putting boots on the ground. Blake’s been around farms for most of his life. Through his experience working on his in-law’s 4,000-acre farm and in the ag retail input industry, he knows the terminology, concerns, and day-to-day decisions facing producers. So it’s easy for Blake to arm them with information to better manage costs, secure financing, and evaluate potential operational changes.
Blake started his accounting career as an auditor at PricewaterhouseCoopers and joined the firm from Pinnacle Ag Distribution, a farm supply distributor in Cleveland, Mississippi.
