Brent Smith

President and CEO

I have dedicated my 30 year career to agriculture with industry leading companies as well as a startup. Having spent the last several years building and leading businesses and teams focused on proprietary technologies, sustainable agriculture, and innovation, it became clear to me that my passions lie in ag biotech and sustainability. Joining the NewLeaf team allowed me to focus on both areas and, at the same time, creating the greatest positive impact we can on global agriculture. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and our 3 kids outdoors golfing, hiking, and skiing.
