The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) has elected Chris Boerm, President of Global Transportation at Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) in Decatur, Illinois, as its new chairman for a one-year term. Boerm, who has climbed the ranks from first and second vice chair, was announced as the chairman during NGFA's 128th annual convention in Orlando, Florida, on March 19.

Boerm, a long-serving member of the NGFA's Board of Directors and Executive Committee since 2014, has an extensive background with ADM, having joined the company in 1991. He holds a bachelor's degree in finance from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, and an MBA from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Alongside Boerm, NGFA elected other industry officers, each set to serve one-year terms:

  • First Vice Chairman: Brian Schouvieller, Senior Vice President of Global Grain Marketing at CHS Inc., Saint Paul, Minnesota.
  • Second Vice Chairman: Augusto Bassanini, President and CEO at United Grain Corporation, Vancouver, Washington.

NGFA's newly elected directors, who will serve three-year terms, include prominent figures in the grain and feed industry:

  • Jeff Bechard, JoAnn Brouillette, Patrick Coyle, Jim Dell, Scott Docherty, Chris Faust, Tom Fernandes, Beau Hepler, Roger Hugenberg, Corey Jorgenson, Joe Kapraun, Bill Krueger, Ron Seeber, Curt Strubhar, Mike Tate, and Jeff Van Pevenage.

This slate of directors and officers reflects a diverse range of expertise and leadership across the grain and feed industry. Their collective experience is expected to guide NGFA in its mission to promote and support the U.S. agriculture sector.

NGFA, which distributed ballots to member companies on February 20, also ratified amendments to its Bylaws, Rail Arbitration Rules, and Trade Rules. The organization, serving the grain, feed, processing, exporting, and other related sectors, plays a crucial role in shaping U.S. agricultural policy and trade.
