Missouri Soybeans’ policy director for the past five years has added a new title, becoming the group’s first chief operating officer. Casey Wasser says as part of his new title, he’ll work closely with CEO Gary Wheeler to achieve the group’s goals.
Wasser says one goal Missouri Soybeans have achieved was supporting the Soy Transportation Coalition’s effort to deepen the Mississippi River from Baton Rouge, allowing more soybean exports per ship and improving basis for producers. He highlights another goal for the next year, increasing promotion of the SOYLEIC trait.
Before joining Missouri Soybeans, Casey Wasser worked for the Missouri Department of Revenue as their legislative director.
