Lynn grew up on his family farm in southeast Missouri where he and his brother worked with their father raising corn, soybeans, rice and cotton. Lynn has remained active in the farm over the years and continues to do so. Lynn graduated from Southeast Missouri State University in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management and a minor in law enforcement. Upon graduating, Lynn acquired a job in operations with Cargill, Inc, where he quickly worked his way up to elevator manager in Hickman, Kentucky. In 2006, Lynn became a grain merchandiser with Consolidated Grain and Barge where he originated grain, before becoming a crop consultant with Hurley and Associates in 2011.
Lynn became acquainted with Hurley and Associates working as a grain merchandiser and was impressed with their level of service to clients while maintaining the integrity of the family farm and their values. Lynn was excited for the opportunity to join the Hurley team and work closely with producers to individualize risk management marketing based on each farmer’s needs. Lynn’s knowledge in marketing, finance and the different levels of the grain elevator business — along with the general workings of a farm — assists in his ability to help producers understand and manage their risk and make educated marketing decisions.
Lynn currently lives in New Madrid, Missouri with his wife, Tiffany and has raised three children — Kameryn, Aaron and Austin—around the farm and their rural community. Lynn enjoys spending time with his family along with hunting and taking kids hunting to enjoy the outdoors.
