We welcome his expertise, industry contacts and ability to extend our services to broader audiences."
Mr. Donicht added, "It is both an art and science to understanding nuances of the energy and agriculture markets we represent.

Given the regulatory shifts, our bulletins and consulting will provide subscribers with a timely outlook relative to the market. I appreciate that the company has an earned reputation for delivering consistently accurate data over the past 150 years. The company has been able to innovate and be in markets before others see the trends, and establish its position against much bigger organizations, maintaining market share as new entrants compete. It's truly a pleasure to be a member of The Jacobsen."
