Elliot Formal has been the interim CEO of Agoro Carbon Alliance since June 2022. Prior to that Elliot was working in a variety of finance roles at Yara, first in the Industrial Solutions segment and most recently in the Portfolio Development area, which supports many of Yara’s strategic initiatives including Agoro. Prior to this, Elliot held roles within finance, international sales, and management consulting at Hurtigruten, Enklere Liv, and BearingPoint, respectively.
Elliot was born and grew up in the Washington, D.C area, graduated with a BBA and BA from James Madison University in Virginia (Go Dukes!), and a Masters in International Business from the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). Elliot has been living in Norway for the last 12 years – together in Oslo now with his wife, two year old daughter, and very lazy dog – but to this day still misses American fast food.
“I very much appreciate not only working together with great colleagues in Agoro but also the remarkable expertise on the team when it comes to both agronomy and carbon markets. While I grew up a city boy, I’m fortunate to be learning new things every day on farming, ranching, and the carbon markets, and am looking forward to getting my boots dirty, wearing cowboy hats, and handling some soil with the Board and the team in the Midwest!”
