Growing challenges

call for a new kind of leader.


Korn Ferry’s Agribusiness practice is the global industry leader for leadership and talent and advisory consulting services.

We know more about people, leadership and the new landscape of work than anyone else, creating superior results for our clients by unlocking their greatest asset – people.

Our extensive experience of working with Agribusiness clients around the world has given us a fundamental understanding of and deep insights into the complex challenges the sector faces in meeting the growing demand for global food commodities, despite increasing pressures on supply. We work with our clients to help them attract, develop and retain the right leaders; enabling them to meet the challenges in the sector while continuing to grow their business in a rapidly changing world.

Creating leaders for a changing world.

Population growth, rising life expectancy, urbanization and increased per capita income are all driving the demand for more and better-quality calories. At the same time, supply in the agricultural system is being constrained by many factors including soil degradation, rising temperatures and competition for land. These challenges call for a new breed of Agribusiness leader – one who can drive innovation, enhance the integrated value chain and engage in positive dialogue with governments, universities and NGOs.
