J. Todd Roach
President & G2
Todd Roach was born and raised in Iowa and graduated high school in Oskaloosa, Iowa. He earned a B.S. from Iowa State and a Ph.D. from University of Mississippi in Experimental Psychology. Todd worked as a scientist for an Alzheimer's research group in Florida for a few years before pivoting from the academic path and returning to Oskaloosa to manage a family-owned title company, attracted by the opportunity to raise his family in Iowa..
After 15+ years in the Iowa title industry, and two kids in high school, he was ready for the challenge of a second career pivot and to dust off his research and writing skills. During that time, John Roach was looking for someone to assist him with the publishing division of Roach Ag and knew bringing in Todd to follow in his footsteps was a natural fit. Todd joined Roach Ag in 2019 as a writer and editor of the First Look and Daily Grain Plan. With Todd in Iowa and John in Florida, the two conference over Zoom every day to discuss markets and craft the daily newsletter.
Todd takes pride in being a second-generation member of the Roach Ag Marketing team and is committed to the values of the family-owned business that John Roach started in 1978. He enjoys watching his kids' school sports and getting outdoors to play disc golf when he has free time.
