Constance Cullman will be stepping into the position of President and CEO of Farm Foundation, NFP.
“We are excited to have Constance step into the day-to-day leadership role at Farm Foundation,” says Farm Foundation Board Chairman Mark Scholl. “She brings to the table a unique set of skills that have been fine-tuned through experiences in education, farm organizations, government service and private business.”
Cullman is currently the U.S. Government Affairs Leader for Dow AgroSciences. Before that she worked at the Corn Refiners Association, the Foreign Agricultural Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, and the Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. She holds a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics and a master’s in agricultural economics from Ohio State.
“Cullman’s diverse background will serve Farm Foundation well as it continues its mission to help public- and private-sector leaders address the critical issues that are shaping the future of agriculture and food systems today,” said Scholl.
Cullman is the seventh person to serve as president since the founding of the organization in 1933. She follows in the footsteps of Neilson Conklin, who has been President since 2008. She begins her new duties on June 6.
