Current Role and Duties

Tillridge Global Agribusiness Partners is a private equity firm in the agribusiness industry in Dallas, Texas. Tillridge is an affiliate of NGP Energy Capital Management, one of the leading investment firms in the natural resources industry. Mark oversees Tillridge's direct equity investments in feed, food and industrial product companies within the agribusiness supply chain. 

Tillridge has over 140 collective years of experience focused on partnering with proven management teams in the midstream agribusiness sector. The company began investing in agribusiness in 2012 as part of its affiliation with NGP Energy Capital Management. Tillridge has committed more than $665 million in capital to agribusiness.

Zenuk cites the Asian Pacific Market, which will encompass 65% of the world's middle class, and the trend toward higher-quality prepared foods in developed countries as the primary growth drivers in the agribusiness industry. He intends to lead Tillridge forward as it confronts the challenges of resource and infrastructure constraints, changing demands of consumers, supply chain fragmentation and government interventions in capital and trade.

Zenuk believes these efforts will result in innovation in digital trade and distribution platforms and other applied technologies and increase supply chain integration, food traceability, sustainability and food safety.
