Mark Poeschl, past FFA state officer in Nebraska, was recently named the new CEO of the National FFA Organization and the National FFA Foundation. Poeschl was the Nebraska FFA State President in 1978-79. He is also a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and comes to National FFA from Cargill. He also assists with oversight over the family farm in Nebraska.
In a press release from National FFA, they cite his strong business, customer service, financial, IT and global perspectives as a huge asset for the organization. Poeschl is replacing Dwight Armstrong, who is retiring after leading the organization for the past seven years.
We’re excited to welcome Mark in his new role on August 1!
