In this episode, we sat down with Darrell Pankratz, CEO of PrairieLand Partners, a John Deere dealership with 15 stores throughout Kansas.
The dealership group was formed in 2008 through the merger of 3 dealerships — Pankratz Implement, Deere Trail Implement and Conrady Western.
In 2019 PrairieLand Partners merged with CTI John Deere. And most recently in 2019, the dealership group acquired O’Malley Equipment Company.
Darrell also shares about how PrairieLand Partners has changed over the 12 years since it formed, aside from the additional mergers and acquisitions over the years.
