Say Cheese! “Click”

Being a native of Wisconsin, I have grown up working on farms, building pole barns, cleaning stalls and milking cows. Being closer to the soil can really give you an appreciation for how products get to market, wrapped and on the shelf, especially when you represent an M&A firm.
