FPI is very happy to announce that Farm Credit Illinois will be joining the FPI family as an equity partner. This decision followed an extensive period of review, by both FC Illinois and FPI, to ensure that the two organizations’ approach to technology, business practices, and strategy would match as they partner into the future.
Howard Bruck, FPI’s CEO stated, “Over the past months, we have had the opportunity of getting to know Farm Credit Illinois, its key staff, and its approach to technology as a competitive and operational advantage. This learning process has clearly demonstrated that FCI is an excellent fit for the advancing systems, products, and services that FPI provides its customers.” Tom Tracy, President and CEO of Farm Credit Illinois echoed this sentiment in his message to the FPI Board, where he indicated that their decision was driven by the professionalism, responsiveness, and demonstrated competency of the FPI team.
We welcome FC Illinois and very much look forward to the many years of collaboration and partnership that lie ahead.
