Join us for the next installment of the "Keeping Connected" alumni webinar series, taking place February 18th at 4:00 pm. This month we are featuring Rob Dongoski, who will be discussing "Food System Reimagined: Innovation and Disruption."
Rob leads Ernst &Young’s Agribusiness sector globally and focuses on strategy, innovation and M&A for many of our clients in the Agribusiness and Food sectors. As EY’s global leader, he is at the forefront of industry issues and works directly with client executives to optimize their approach in the global markets.  He also serves as the lead partner on several global accounts ranging from seed/chem, Agri-retail, grain processing, and meat processing. 
Rob’s experience ranges from growth strategy to operating model design to digital innovation across the Agri value chain.    Rob has also worked extensively to foster innovation and digital adoption across the industry with corporate clients, private equity, and venture capital communities.
In nearly 22 years with EY, Rob has served companies such as Monsanto, Bayer Crop Sciences, Dupont/Corteva, Nutrien (formerly Agrium/CPS and PotashCorp), Land O’ Lakes, CHS, Tyson Foods, ADM, Hillshire Brands, Kellogg, Cargill, Ingredion, The Andersons, Beam Global, and Kraft. This client base and his role as the senior advisory partner on several other clients have enabled him to become a knowledge leader on matters of critical importance to global and market-leading companies.
