Farm Forum

The American Angus Association has named Chris Stallo its vice president of operations. Stallo will assist the organization’s 90-plus employees with daily operations at the Association’s headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo., and work to provide opportunities and service to the Association’s more than 25,000 members across the United States and Canada.

“Every day in our business, it’s a member-first mentality,” Stallo says. “I look forward to working with our employees to carry on our long-held tradition of superior member service, and helping the Association become more efficient and valuable to those who rely on Angus cattle.”

A 14-year veteran of the Association’s information systems department, Stallo has well served the breed through creative programming solutions through AAA Login, the Association website and the Angus Mobile smartphone app. As a member of the information systems department, he was part of the team that developed the technical infrastructure necessary for the weekly release of the National Cattle Evaluation (NCE), among many other critical projects.

“Because of his extensive experience with the Association’s systems and programs, Chris is a tremendous asset to our team and our membership,” says Bryce Schumann, Association chief executive officer. “He is a positive leader for our Association and always has a friendly smile and a keen eye for efficiency.”

Stallo says he is looking forward to playing a larger role for the organization and its daily procedures. He will oversee the member services department, the information systems department and the Angus Information Management Software (AIMS) team.

Primary responsibilities include coordinating interaction with departments and staff, day-to-day operations of the Association, as well as recommending process improvements in each area of the business. Continuous improvement is a goal, Stallo says, and adds he will look toward implementing new systems that make the organization more efficient.

Stallo grew up on a commercial cattle operation near Marceline, Mo., in the north central part of the state. In 2012, he represented the Association during the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC), which provides young leaders a look at the entire beef production chain.

He and his wife, Suzanne, live in Platte City, Mo., with their three sons.
