Bill King

After a successful career on Wall Street, Bill has spent the last six years exploring his passion for farming, food, and investments in both. Bill is the founder of the Back 40 Farm and co-founded of the Old Greenwich Farmer’s Market. When Bill is not immersed in financial models, he can be found planting vegetables, expanding his farm, talking about improving organic food systems or working on behalf of the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture where he is an active board member. Bill brings passion and drive to everything he touches, including Green & Tonic.

Previously, he was at Catterton, where he explored high growth companies with a focus on 23 new investment opportunities. Matt enjoys building consumer businesses by inspiring entrepreneurs who can literally change people’s lives (he wrote that about us). He follows a gluten-free, green-focused (but animal protein supplemented!) diet – a direct result of post-hockey injury rehab. He can’t live without his Ultimate Warrior (sub Almond Milk) and will forever argue that Vitamix is a better blender than Blendtec.
