Market Check Appoints New Commodity Advisor

Market Check has recently hired Grant Hinrichsen as a Senior Commodity Advisor based in Orange, Central West NSW. Richard Perkins, General Manager said “This new office differs from our centralised structure but we could not pass up the opportunity to secure a highly skilled grain marketing professional that complements our existing business.”

Grant has been well-known to Market Check’s founder, Brett Stevenson since their days working together at the Sydney futures exchange back in 1994. Grant Joins Market Check from a 16-year career in Canada, where he worked in a number of international trading firms including Refco, MAN Group and Scotia Bank. Grant most recently worked at R.J.O’Brien, one of the last remaining original Chicago based commodity firms. Grant’s Canadian business was very focused on helping producers improve their returns through improved marketing techniques. “I enjoy helping farmers understand the various marketing options available to them and how they can help achieve better returns over the long term. Furthermore, at Market Check we have access to a great range of marketing products that are easy for producers to access. The important part is making sure growers have a good understanding of the products they are using and the benefits to their overall operation. It’s also great to work with Brett again.” (Grant Hinrichsen).

Grant has a unique grain marketing skillset from his days working in North America and Market Check believes he will be a strong addition to the team. The added benefit of having Grant based in Orange means grower clients and partners in regional NSW will have more frequent direct access to Market Check and their innovative grain marketing strategies. Market Check’s new office address is Suite 2, 204-206 Lords Place, Orange for any enquiries please call (02) 9499 4199.
