Jarek leads the business
from Poland to India
to Singapore to France

When Jarek Skowronski graduated from Wroclaw University, he accepted a job at DLL in Eindhoven. “It was a great start,” says Jarek. “I was in DLL, a global provider of asset-based financial solutions, and part of the Rabobank Group, one of the world’s leading financial services companies. I was getting international experience in the Netherlands. But one thing was for sure. I could never see myself staying in one company for the next 15 years. Well, I didn’t quite nail that prediction, did I?”

The right skill set and experience

From that starting job in 2008, Jarek built a stellar DLL career. It has taken him on a journey from the Netherlands back to Poland then on to India, Singapore and now to France. This journey was always driven by bringing the right skill set and experience to each role in each country.

Jarek’s career at DLL has also taken him on a knowledge and development journey. “I started in the Risk department, then went to Business Support and Operations on my way to General Management,” he says. With such a broad understanding of the DLL customers, culture and business, Jarek had the perfect qualifications for his latest appointment in April 2023 as Managing Director of AGCO Finance in France.

Big in finance and food production

AGCO Finance is the worldwide provider of financing solutions for AGCO, a global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of agricultural equipment. AGCO Finance is a joint venture between AGCO Corporation and DLL.

Agriculture is big in France, which consistently ranks in the world’s top 10 agricultural-producing countries. “It’s exciting to be in the French market,” says Jarek. “It has such a rich heritage and plays such an important role in global food production. It’s an honor to offer AGCO’s great equipment brands such as Fendt, Valtra and Massey Ferguson to farmers here.”

The sweet spot in French food production

France is home to one of AGCO Finance’s largest national organizations. Jarek and his team are committed to delivering the right financial products to equipment dealers and farmers across the country. AGCO Finance France office is located in Beauvais, an area 60 kilometers north of Paris.

“Beauvais is home to one of Europe’s largest tractor factories, a Massey Ferguson plant that produces 20,000 tractors annually,” says Jarek. “AGCO Finance is located in the Massey Ferguson offices, so some of my main business partners are just down the hall. Beauvais is the sweet spot in French agriculture and equipment financing,” says Jarek.

Partnering to make agriculture more sustainable

Agriculture has a profound potential to help mitigate dangerous climate events. AGCO Finance is committed to helping farmers accelerate their transition to more sustainable business operations and offers a number of programs.

“We offer Climate Journey products to approved farmers who are transitioning to sustainable agriculture ,” says Jarek. “We also partner with the European Investment Bank to provide lower interest rates for farmers who invest in tractors and other machinery with cleaner engines. Our financing can enable farmers to have an impact on more sustainable agriculture. We can really help them to make a difference,” says Jarek.
