Brennan Turner previously founded Combyne Ag, a grain accounting and crop marketing hub built to help producers make more informed decisions while on the go, via digitizing and unifying inventory, contracts, load tickets and settlements into a single app. He holds a degree in economics from Yale University and spent time on Wall Street in commodity trade and analysis before starting Combyne. In 2017, Brennan was named to Fast Company’s List of Most Creative People in Business and, in 2018, a Henry Crown Fellow as part of the Aspen Institute. He is originally from Foam Lake, Saskatchewan where his family started farming the land nearly 100 years ago (and still does to this day on more than 80,000 acres!). Brennan’s comments on grain markets are regularly featured in everything from small-town newspapers to large media outlets like CNBC and Bloomberg.
