National Corn Growers Name New CEO

A University of Missouri graduate will become the new CEO of the National Corn Growers Association.  The Chesterfield-based commodity group announced Wednesday that Neil Caskey would assume the top role beginning Monday.  NCGA President Tom Haag says that Caskey’s experience in agriculture is extensive, and that he is known as someone who gets the job done.  Caskey is the current vice president of communications and industry relations, having stepped into the role four years ago after spending over a decade at the OBP Agency.  His professional background also includes work for the American Soybean Association and as a Congressional legislative aide.

Caskey holds a B.A. in political science from the University of Missouri and an MBA from Webster University.  He succeeds previous CEO Jon Doggett, who left NCGA at the end of last year.
