January 24, 2018

Charleston, MO (January 24, 2018)  Hurley & Associates announces the hiring of Matt Kunerth as Risk Management Consultant in their Brookings, SD office.  As a consultant and licensed commodities broker with Hurley & Associates, Matt works closely with farm clients’ budgets, cash flow requirements and risk management strategies to work toward a profitable conclusion to each crop year.

Having grown up on a grain farm near Fulda, MN, Matt learned to work hard and to enjoy his work.  Through his family’s seed business, he developed a business mind in agriculture and a passion for the Ag industry.  He graduated from South Dakota State University with a degree in Agricultural Business and a minor in Agricultural Marketing.  Matt developed an interest in a career in grain marketing through internship opportunities at both a grain co-op and a soybean processing plant.  He also worked as a Commodity Marketing Research Assistant while an undergrad at SDSU. 

Matt first joined the Hurley & Associates marketing team as a Hog Consultant Intern the summer of 2017 in Glenwood, MN and then joined the firm full-time in December of 2017 as a Farm Marketing Consultant in Brookings, SD. 

Partnering first-hand with agricultural producers, learning about what makes their operations unique, and ultimately seeing the success of farm families are what Matt really enjoys. 

“Matt is just out of college but possesses a maturity beyond his years and is extremely sharp.  We are excited to invest in young talent like him,” said Trent Hurley, CEO of Hurley & Associates.
