The American Feed Industry Association has Constance Cullman to succeed Joel Newman as president and chief executive officer of the association, upon his retirement later this year. She will also become the president of the industry’s public charity, the Institute for Feed Education and Research. Cullman will officially join AFIA on July 29.
Cullman currently serves as president of Farm Foundation, the seventh person to lead the organization in its 86-year history. She has served as President of the Foundation since June 2016. “Over the past three years with Constance leading the team, Farm Foundation has strengthened its role as a convener of all voices in the food and agriculture sector and as a source of objective analyses,” said Joe Swedberg, Chairman of the Farm Foundation Board of Directors. Swedberg has appointed a search committee to begin the process of finding a successor.
