Meet Martin Richenhagen

Chairman, President and CEO, AGCO

The Story
Martin Richenhagen joined AGCO, Your Agriculture Company, in 2004. AGCO, headquartered in Duluth, is the world’s largest manufacturer purely focused on agriculture. AGCO offers a full product line of agricultural equipment sold under the core brands of Challenger®, Fendt®, Massey Ferguson® and Valtra® in over 140 countries.

How I Got Here:
I never anticipated running a large company. With careers ranging from teacher and horse trainer to a CEO, one can see that I was always open to changes and to learning new things.

What I Do for Fun:
I have enjoyed working with horses all my life. I love how the horse and rider work together as a team. In 2008, I served as chef d’equipe of the German Dressage Team in the Beijing Olympics.

My Big Dream:
That one day every man, woman and child would own one of AGCO’s products.

What’s Next For Me:
To continue to provide high-tech solutions for farmers feeding the world, while redefining and leading the agricultural equipment category by increasing the efficiency and productivity of farmers.
