National Livestock Producers Association Searching for new CEO

As the organization enters its 97th year of serving livestock producers, the National Livestock Producers Association (NLPA), the national association of livestock marketing cooperatives and their captive livestock credit corporations, is looking for its next Chief Executive Officer.

Scott Stuart, longtime executive of the association, was recently tapped as the new CEO of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, the organization that administers the Beef Checkoff.  The NLPA Board of Directors is pleased for Scott and is confident he will do a great job for beef producers in his new position.

NLPA is seeking that individual who has a strong livestock and association management background and is able to provide strategic leadership for the organization and manage all aspects of organizational affairs.  The next CEO must be a gifted communicator, energetic self-starter and motivational and inspirational leader with an exceptional ability to articulate a clear vision for a diverse organization, build consensus, collaborate and drive toward a common vision.  NLPA is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado; an extremely attractive location that offers many outdoor activities and has exceptional travel connections.

The national CEO search is being conducted by MJM Global Search, an executive search firm located near Denver, Colorado.  Jim Harlan, MJM’s President and CEO, is leading the search and has placed several top executives in various agricultural and livestock organizations both nationally and internationally.

Those interested in more information on this exciting opportunity are invited to contact Jim at 303-660-0766 or jim@mjmglobalsearch.com.  More information on NLPA and the Position Announcement is available at www.nlpa.org.
