NGFA lead to retire after 43 years service
The US National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) last month announced the impending retirement of its president and chief executive officer, Randy Gordon, which will occur following the association’s 125th annual convention in March 2021.
At that time, he will have served nearly 43 years in various executive capacities at NGFA, most recently as the organization’s chief executive staff officer since 2012.
“It has been an honor and inspiration to work nearly my entire professional career at NGFA,” he said. “The noble purpose NGFA’s member companies perform in transforming the American farmer’s bounty into safe, nutritious, sustainable and affordable human and animal food, and the professionalism and integrity with which it does so, is a high calling. I’ve also been blessed to work with a peerless, effective and supportive professional staff to advance this great industry’s goals and policy objectives, which are grounded in competitive, free-market principles.”
NGFA Chairman JoAnn Brouillette, managing partner of Demeter LP, Fowler, Ind, commenting on Gordon’s pending retirement, said: “His leadership, dedication and selfless service were instrumental in NGFA pursuing new programs and services for its members, and in overcoming many challenges that came thereafter. He also has played a key role in the association’s continued growth.”
The NGFA will now begin the process of selecting Gordon’s successor.
