Pedro Dejneka

Partner & Co-founder
MD Commodities

Pedro is a Partner and Co-Founder of MD Commodities – a global macroeconomic and agricultural commodity consulting firm with specific focus covering Brazil and Latin America with offices in Brazil and in the United States.
He was born and raised around the beautiful corn and soy fields of northern Paraná state, in Brazil.  Paraná is the second largest soybean and corn producing state in the country. Pedro came to the U.S. at age 16 in pursuit of a college education through a basketball scholarship.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ohio Valley University with a degree in Business Administration and specialized in Economics and Financial Markets and attended Marshall University while pursuing an MBA degree.
He started his career in the financial industry with experience at some of the largest investment banks in the world, but quickly moved to specialize in the commodity markets as an International Consultant focused on Latin America and more specifically, his home country of Brazil.   By taking what he learned in the U.S. about the global commodity and financial markets back to his home country, he fulfilled one of the objectives he had when he first arrived in the U.S.:  to go back one day to serve his community and establish a bridge of knowledge between the U.S., Brazil and the World.
As Latin America’s importance to the world agricultural export markets evolved, so did Pedro’s career and the demand for his particular set of skills, knowledge and dynamics.  His ability to dissect and easily communicate complex subjects such as how global & regional economic factors affect/alter the global agricultural landscape, separates him as one of the top international presenters on the subject. Additionally, Pedro’s deep network in Latin America, especially in Brazil, and globally, along with his cultural acuity and knowledge of both the Brazilian and U.S. local markets, make him and his team a highly sought-after asset for companies and individuals across Latin America and the globe. 
Today, Pedro and his team provide private consulting to some of the largest producers, private corporations and public agencies in Brazil, covering nearly 8 million acres of production in that country alone.  U.S., Asian and European clients also trust the expertise Pedro and his team bring to the table, all focusing on agricultural commodity and macroeconomic trend forecasting and analysis.  
Pedro is well-known in the Brazilian and international media when the subject is agricultural commodities/macroeconomy, having his work often mentioned in publications such as Bloomberg, Reuters, Valor Econômico, Canal Rural, Financial Times, etc, and is also a sought-after speaker, with his unique ability to communicate his expertise and truly engage his public in English, Portuguese and Spanish alike.
