Marco Streng started as Business Advisor at Agriterra on April 3, 2017. He is part of team World and therefore supporting multiple regions.
Marco grew up on a tree nursery in Boskoop in the western part of the Netherlands. This is where he got familiar with the horticulture sector. He studied International Business Administration, followed by a Master in Supply Chain Management.
During his studies Marco travelled quite a lot outside Europe. Seeing new cultures and meeting new people broadened his view and this was also when he started to think about business in a different way.
Marco started his professional career at Danone where he was a global buyer of ingredients for five years. This gave him insight on the corporate business world and at the same time it brought him in contact with many agricultural commodities like milk, soya and cocoa.
He now would like to combine his experience in the corporate world with his eagerness to help people. Supporting agricultural organisations in a pragmatic way with real impact is his aim.
