Patrick 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.
Patrick is a fifth-generation citrus and cattle farmer. He remains active in the agricultural community as a member of the Florida FFA Foundation, the AFBF Young Farmers & Ranchers program, and sitting on the board of directors for 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, Patrick 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, Patrick 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 $100MM in loans YTD in 2020 and helped improve the financial situation of farmers, ranchers, and rural landowners nationwide.
