Bryan Stanek

Compeer Financial

Managing Director of Developing Industries

Bryan Stanek started his 23 year career within the Farm Credit System in 1999.  This opportunity presented itself while finishing his studies in Agribusiness-finance, management, and equipment systems and power systems at University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Additionally he studied at the ARA Management Academy at Purdue University.  His first role with Badgerland Farm Credit Services was as an account officer serving broad demographic agriculture in Monroe County Wisconsin.  In 2013 he was promoted to the role of Executive SVP-Credit Delivery, where Bryan reported to the cooperative board of directors and managed the employee sales field staff, credit programs, and developed growth/service quality initiatives. After the merger that created Compeer Financial in July of 2017, Bryan provided senior leadership for the Industry Specialist group, which included carbon markets, large dairy, potatoes/vegetables, cranberries/fruit, forestry, farm to fork, and leasing.  In 2023, Bryan will be transitioning full-time as a senior leader to Developing Markets. This includes focusing as an education resource and provide market access for those in all agriculture trades for carbon markets. The Farm Credit System is a GSE that connects 66 cooperative associations to provide capital to U.S farmers, ranchers and agribusiness. This represents 40% of all the borrowed capital within the US and adds up to nearly $300 billion in loans and leases to nearly 600,000 customers. Bryan lives in rural Baraboo, Wisconsin with his two teenage boys and wife. They share his passion for the outdoors and agriculture. He still has ties to his family Christmas tree farm where he spends many weekends devoted to the trade.
