Sarah Anderson Joins BRANDT Legal Team in Tampa Headquarters

TAMPA, Florida (1 March 2023) – BRANDT, a leading agriculture retailer and manufacturer of specialty agriculture products, has added Sarah Anderson to its Tampa-based legal team as Associate General Counsel.

In her new role, Anderson will focus on BRANDT’s international business, new ventures and affiliated companies.

“I am looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and engaging with the leadership at BRANDT: It’s exciting to join such a fast-growing, family business,” said Anderson. “I’ve been at a private, B2B business so this will allow me to apply my experience and continue to tackle complex issues.”

Anderson starts at BRANDT on March 1. She will report to R. Lee Allen, BRANDT Chief Legal Officer.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sarah to BRANDT,” said Allen. “As we continue to grow our business in new and innovative ways, it’s critical that we always manage our risk, anticipate where the business is going and continue to comply with ever-evolving laws and regulations. Sarah will have an important role to play. With product sales in more than 80 countries, it’s a complex task to make sure we have the right frameworks in place to protect our interests and enable sales.”

Anderson joins BRANDT with a deep and varied legal career. She was most recently associate general counsel at Tampa-based Hendry Marine Industries. Before that, she was a senior associate in private practice. Earlier in her career she clerked for some of Florida’s most prominent federal judges and worked on landmark product liability cases involving the country’s largest tobacco companies.

Anderson holds a B.S. in Policy Analysis & Management from Cornell University where she played Division 1 lacrosse; she earned her J.D. from Nova Southeastern University, summa cum laude.
