Last week, alliantgroup proudly welcomed former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Johanns to their team as the Chairman of Agriculture.  As former Governor and U.S. Senator for Nebraska, Secretary Johanns provides alliantgroup with an impressive resume, boasting a strong background in agriculture and economic development with more than 30 years of government expertise.

“During my years of public service, I was committed to supporting small and mid-sized businesses and alliantgroup’s mission falls perfectly in line with that commitment. Having grown up on a farm in Iowa, agriculture is a personal passion of mine, and I’m eager to help this industry grow and stay competitive in the global market. I look forward to helping alliantgroup educate companies on the powerful business incentives available,” said Secretary Johanns.

While serving as alliantgroup’s Chairman of Agriculture, Secretary Johanns will be pivotal in guiding the firm’s correspondence on available tax credits and incentives benefiting the agricultural industry. In order to help support the firm’s growing team of agricultural professionals, Secretary Johanns will serve as alliantgroup’s agricultural industry advisor.

“I am so honored that Secretary Johanns has joined our firm.  Secretary Johanns is recognized as a premier leader in agriculture and economic development, having led both large and complex government agencies. This experience will be invaluable as we educate agricultural companies and co-ops on government-sponsored tax incentives and the immense value they can bring back to this sector of the economy. By joining our firm, Secretary Johanns has further elevated alliantgroup as a leader in tax expertise,” announced alliantgroup’s CEO, Dhaval Jadav.
