“I currently work for Bunge Global in White Plains, which I joined last January as part of the global research team. The work is exciting and it never gets boring. I started as an oilseed analyst, learning about the business, and I now work on different projects in modeling and forecasting.”
Roman Lynch (Captain Midnight), 1976
“I graduated in 1976 from ISU’s Department of Economics and thought I was ready to become a citizen of the world. As it turned out, I stayed in Ames, took a job selling life insurance, and got involved in the Lions Club, Toastmasters, and St. Thomas Aquinas Church.”
