New Vice President and General Counsel, Elise Alexander, brings wealth of agricultural and legal experience.
FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. (Apr. 5, 2019) — AcreTrader, a nationwide farmland investing company, has announced a new senior manager to join the growing team.
Elise Alexander was raised on a farm and cattle ranch in Crawford County, Arkansas. Since 2003 she has served as President of a large family office, managing several companies and serving as legal counsel. From 2003 to 2012, Elise served as VP and General Counsel for T.A.W., Inc., an oilfield services company with $200 million in revenue across multiple states.
Prior to T.A.W., Elise worked for several years as an associate at the Orrick firm in Silicon Valley forming and advising startups and public companies regarding securities compliance, mergers & acquisitions, and initial public offerings. Before her time with Orrick, she worked as in-house corporate counsel for Varian Associates, Inc. in Palo Alto, California.
Elise obtained a B.S. in Political Science from Texas A&M University in 1989 and a J.D. from Pepperdine University School of Law in 1992.
“We are super excited to have Elise on board,” said Carter Malloy, CEO of AcreTrader. “Her level of legal acumen has already proven to be invaluable, and it really helps that she knows the ins and outs of commercial agriculture. We couldn’t have asked for a better combination of skills in one person.”

AcreTrader works with landowners and operating partners across the United States to identify value for investors in today’s market.
