New hires will bolster Peoples Company’s farm management services in Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Georgia, and Alabama

Peoples Company, a full-service land transaction and management business, today announced the hires of Thiago Lima and Tommy Funk, continuing the company’s national expansion. Lima will oversee Peoples Company’s farm management in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama and work alongside Peoples Company’s brokerage team. Funk will focus on Texas and Oklahoma, with an emphasis on land management and land acquisition.

“Peoples Company has always been able to serve clients in each agricultural region, but our continued expansion nationally – with the hires of Thiago and Tommy, among others – positions our team as the leader in farmland management across the country,” said Peoples Company President Steve Bruere. “While we continue to be focused on growing our team and breadth of experience, these two hires complete our expansion into each major U.S. agricultural region.”

Thiago Lima brings years of experience managing diverse farmland portfolios. He specializes in facilitating the adoption of innovative cropping systems and cutting-edge technologies while optimizing operational efficiencies in alignment with value chain objectives. Lima comes to Peoples Company following eight years of experience with Fall Line Capital.

Tommy Funk joins Peoples Company after serving nine years as a partner and president of Goldcrest Farm and Trust Advisors. While in that role, Funk led the expansion of the company’s investment portfolios through land acquisitions and oversaw farm management. Funk will work closely with Peoples Company’s land management team serving clients in Texas and Oklahoma.
