Ever.Ag Names Veteran Leader to New Position of President

Mike Sargent will be responsible for bringing strategic focus and operational excellence to drive further innovation in the Ever.Ag Software business, the company said. He will report to CEO Scott Sexton.

Mike Sargent has joined Frisco-based Ever.Ag, a provider of supply chain software and financial services for the agriculture industry, in the new position of president.

Sargent will be responsible for bringing strategic focus and operational excellence to drive further innovation in the Ever.Ag Software business, the company said. He will report to CEO Scott Sexton.

“The addition of Mike to our senior leadership team reflects Ever.Ag’s commitment to investing in high-impact talent and technology as we shape a bold, new future for Ever.Ag and our customers,” Sexton said in a statement. “Mike brings to Ever.Ag the senior-level experience we need as the Ag sector matures away from point solutions to solve end-to-end processes by leveraging technology, financial services and operations support.”

Over the past 12 years Sargent has led large-scale transformations, converting software portfolios into powerful platforms that drive customer value and improve financial performance, Ever.Ag said. He has held senior positions at Computer Associates, Riverbed Technology, Aternity, and Single Digits.

“I am very excited to join the Ever.Ag team at this pivotal point in the company’s evolution,” Sargent said in a statement. “The Ag sector faces a unique set of challenges, and Ever.Ag has led the industry in assembling a truly unparalleled set of technology and financial service capabilities. There’s enormous opportunity in leveraging those capabilities to deliver innovative solutions that unlock huge value for our customers. I look forward to working with the team to take Ever.Ag to the next level.”

Before his software leadership roles, Sargent was a senior partner for 18 years at Oliver Wyman, the New York-based international management consulting firm, where he led the communications, media and technology practice.

Ever.Ag, formed last year by a merger of three agricultural companies, offers innovative AgTech solutions and services that empower agriculture, food, and beverage supply chains to feed a growing world.
