The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) announced that Neil Caskey would take the organization’s helm this week. Casey succeeds former CEO John Doggett, who recently stepped down after 20 years of service.

Caskey comes to NCGA after serving as an executive vice president at a marketing agency, a legislative aide, and at the American Soybean Association. He says he most looks forward to leading an organization passionate about driving victory for corn growers on issues like renewable fuels (the Next Generation Fuels Act), trade issues like Mexico’s ban on GMO corn and federal policy with the reauthorization of the farm bill.
