Rabobank America eNews

Our website has a new look! And to celebrate that new design, I’m sharing with everyone rather than only those who subscribe to the newsletter. So, if you’re getting this and never have before – no worries, you have not been added. However, let me know if you would like to receive this information in the future.

At any rate, our website has been enhanced with new tools and features as well as a new design, and of course, we’ve updated the News Room -- go to to see the changes. You can also get there by going to and clicking the News Room link in the upper right corner.

Additionally, I’ve been working to enhance our media outreach and have made some changes to our distribution lists. One list, “Cotton, Grains and Oilseeds” has been split into two: “Cotton” and “Grains and Oilseeds”. Finally, I added a “Wine” list. Email me if you have any questions or would like to make changes. You can also fill out the online form if that’s easier – click on Media Lists on the left in the News Room.

Now for the news, here’s what’s on tap:

  • Upcoming Rabobank Group News
  • Consumer Behavior podcast
  • Recently Released News
  • California Expansion
  • New branches open in Modesto
