The Madison-Morgan Chamber of Commerce welcomed a new business, Rabo AgriFinance, located at 173 South Main St. in downtown Madison, with a ribbon ceremony and luncheon on June 19. Relationship Manager Doug Graham thanked the chamber for rallying around the company in support. “I want to give a special thanks to Ann Huff with the city for making us feel so welcomed as soon as we got to Madison,” said Graham. “We’re excited about being here in Madison, and bring a high level of experience and industry knowledge to farmers and ranchers across Georgia.
It’s a true pleasure to work with the individuals who are committed to agriculture in Georgia, and we enjoy being their partner as they grow their businesses.” Rabo AgriFinance provides financial services to agricultural producers and agribusinesses across the United States. It’s part of Rabobank, the premier bank to the global agriculture industry. According to Graham, the company chose to open an office in Madison because of the strong ties the town has to agriculture, and the role agriculture has played in Madison’s rich history. “We offer a full range of flexible and innovative lending insurance products for leading agricultural producers and agribusinesses…” explained Graham. “Because we’re located in the rural towns, agricultural centers and farming regions where our clients live and work, we understand their operations, their sectors, and their unique financial needs.
We have the extensive background, experience, and knowledge our clients expect in an Ag lender.” Rabo AgriFinance is part of the Rabobank Group, a leading global financial services provider with over $900 billion in assets serving more than 10 million customers worldwide.
