Change and uncertainty are continuous challenges for senior leaders – wherever their responsibilities lie within the value chain. Through the help of an exceptional Steering Committee, Purdue University and Wells Fargo Food and Agribusiness partner to bring the right issues and senior leaders to the table for critical industry discussions at the Purdue Food and Agribusiness Executive Summit.

Summit participants will explore the challenges facing our food and agribusiness industry and examine options for a strategic response. The engagement with industry and academic thought leaders attendees experience during the summit allows them to brainstorm new strategies and leave invigorated to take action. Attendees will also experience the cross-pollination of ideas across industry segments, as well as an unprecedented opportunity to build personal and professional relationships.


This summit brings together business leaders from across the value chain who are shaping today’s food and agribusiness environment. It is intended for, but not limited to: chairpersons, chief executive officers, owners, managing directors and other current and rising leaders who drive strategy and decision making in their firms. Those with significant responsibilities and considerable agri-food industry knowledge and experience are encouraged to apply.

Case studies and topical sessions are designed to engage senior leader and executive decision makers throughout the supply chain, including: input suppliers, agricultural producers, merchandisers, distributors, retailers, food service providers, financial service companies, government agencies and technology companies working in the food and agribusiness industry.

“I attended the Purdue Food and Agribusiness Executive Summit for the first time in 2019. What set the summit apart and made it so valuable was the interaction with other attendees. The case study format gave us the opportunity to discuss and learn from each other, along with hearing directly from leaders featured in the cases. The diverse viewpoints and insights from other executives were incredibly thought-provoking and broadened my perspective. I left inspired and with renewed energy for advancing innovation in the food and agribusiness sectors.”  – Janet Sichterman, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Innovation, Kent Corporation
