Pat Spinosa is the Director of Business Development, joining the AgAmerica family in 2017. He is a proud graduate of the University of Florida with multigenerational roots in Florida agriculture.
Pat is a fifth-generation citrus and cattle farmer. He remains highly active in the agricultural community and organizations such as Florida FFA Foundation, the AFBF Young Farmers & Ranchers Program, and the Florida Forestry Association. Through these experiences, he’s had the opportunity to build relationships with family-owned farm operations across the nation. He enjoys making a positive impact on the lives of American youth and encouraging the development of their skills in leadership, personal growth, and professional success through agricultural education.
Prior to AgAmerica, Pat was a survey technician for Pickett and Associates—an engineering, surveying, and geospatial firm. During his time here, he surveyed land for federal agencies including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife services, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and U.S. Department of Agriculture.
His personal background in U.S. agriculture combined with his passion for rural land and family farm conservation inspired him to search for an innovative career where he could advocate for this essential way of life on a larger scale. As Director of Business Development of AgAmerica Lending, Pat oversees the client relations department who manages a 500+ client portfolio that continues to grow rapidly. Through his leadership, the inbound and outbound sales teams have closed more than $400MM in loans and helped improve the financial situation of farmers, ranchers, and rural landowners nationwide.
