CGB Enterprises, Inc. (CGB) announces that Steve O’Nan, senior vice president of CGB Soybean Processing and president of North Dakota Soybean Processors (NDSP), has retired after more than 40 years of dedication and leadership within agriculture.

O'Nan began his career with CGB in 2013 as vice president and has spent his entire 40-plus year career in the soybean processing industry.

He will continue to serve the company as a board member for NDSP, a joint venture formed by CGB Enterprises, Inc. and Minnesota Soybean Processors, which will own and operate a state-of-the-art processing facility near Casselton, ND.

“If I have learned anything this last 43 years, it is the importance of the people around you," said O'Nan.

"I am blessed to have been around so many incredible people, and I can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with this great company as you go forward."
