Before launching Perfect Fit Presentations LLC, Ag Economist and author Dan Manternach had been a top executive with four of the nation’s leading firms specializing in commodity market outlook and price risk management:

As President of Professional Farmers of Americain Cedar Falls, IA he developed strategic alliances with other firms that helped grow both the U.S. business and launch Pro Farmer Australia and Pro Farmer Canada, both still thriving today under independent ownership.

As a VP at Sparks Companies of Memphis (now Informa Economics) he developed customized web content for client firms and also marketed the firm’s Multi-Client Research Studies.

As VP and later General Manager at Doane Advisory Services of St. Louis, he edited the weekly Doane Agricultural Report, Ag Lender Magazine and 3 regional versions of “Farming for Profit”, a monthly news and market letter ag bank clients would send out under their own logo.

As Senior Economist and St. Louis Regional Office Director for Roach Ag Marketing of Boca Raton FL, Dan deliverED workshops around the country explaining “the Roach approach” to spotting buy and sell signals, its enviable track record and profitable use of the system.

Through his career Dan has taught as an adjunct instructor on price risk management at the University of Northern Iowa, been a consultant to the U.S. Grains Council on a trade mission to China, defended the beef industry in their lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey on national TV, and been named “Ag Communicator of the Year” by the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA).

As Founder and President of Perfect Fit Presentations LLC, Dan’s focus is custom research and custom presentations “made to order” per client specs. He’s even served legal firms as a forensic economist in ag litigation cases alleging losses in yields or pricing opportunities due to breach of contract or faulty products. He sums his “value proposition” today this way:

 “The most important thing for potential clients to understand is that I don’t
necessarily expect them to want what I already have. I welcome requests for proposals, research, send a draft outline and tweak it until I have what they want!”
