John Donicht is the president of The Jacobsen. Growing up in Minnesota, he has always had a love for the outdoors. He attended the University of Wisconsin Madison where he earned his Bachelors degree in Economics and an MBA in finance from the University of Minnesota
His interest in the trading of fats started almost twenty years ago when he applied his experience in economics and finance to a new job trading fats. In early 2000 John co-founded by-products interactive, the purpose of creating a central exchange for fats and protein markets. BPI purchased The Jacobsen where they have grown and aimed to bring transparency to this opaque market.
Today, John is in charge of the strategic direction that the Jacobsen follows, working as quality control as well as giving his writers and editors a clear understanding of what they should be working on. John is also improving The Jacobsen with a stronger focus on the international market.
John currently lives in Colorado with his family where they enjoy hiking, biking, skiing and anything else outdoors. He thanks you for being apart of The Jacobsen and looks forward to another year analyzing this diverse industry.
