Chris Winward has roots in Agriculture that run deep. Early on, Chris developed a passion for agriculture which led to a move from his home state of Pennsylvania to study at Oklahoma State University, where he competed on the rodeo team and majored in Animal Science. Before graduating, Chris traveled overseas and took an International Agriculture course in Italy. This led to the development of a specific interest in international markets and ultimately a career in commodity trading. After college, Chris moved to Nashville and joined the trade desk at Swift Trading. He eventually became a partner with the firm and currently is Branch Manager of the Delray Beach, Florida office. An avid fisherman and musician, Chris' interests have taken him as far away as Canada and Australia. He is a reservist for Homeland Security and deployed last year to assist with the hurricane relief efforts.
