Meet Marty Pentecost

Marty

Martin Pentecost joined the Powers Team in February 2015 as our new Agribusiness and Finance Consultant.

With over 20 years of experience in agribusiness, Marty has a strong understanding of the issues and challenges facing agriculture and rural industries. Marty is based in the Rockhampton Office but travels to Biloela and throughout Queensland on a regular basis.
The agribusiness industry poses a very unique set of business challenges and demands.

Powers’ Agribusiness and Finance offers targeted and informed agribusiness advice across rural Australia.
