Red Angus CEO and Board announce changes

Farm Forum

The Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) has reached a mutual agreement with Dr. Twig Marston to not renew the two-year CEO contract which expires Jan. 15, 2016.

Marston is leaving the RAAA to pursue other opportunities in the cattle industry. He will remain with the RAAA until arrangements are made for a replacement. A search committee has been formed to begin this process.

Marston stated, “It has been a privilege to serve as CEO of RAAA. While the Board and I have mutually agreed to pursue other options, I leave RAAA with great memories of bringing outstanding talent to key staff positions and building industry-leading teams in key areas. The many new friends, colleagues and contacts I have made will always be cherished. I wish the RAAA membership the best and hope it will continue to lead the beef seedstock industry in leadership roles as well as genetic and marketing programs.”

According to RAAA president Kim Ford, “Dr. Marston has hired many talented individuals on behalf of Red Angus, in addition to advancing a culture of customer service in the Registration and Member Services department. RAAA appreciates the valuable work Dr. Marston has performed as CEO of our association.”

Marston leaves the Association in a thriving position. Membership, registrations, transfers and Total Herd Reporting inventory are all up according to the 2014-2015 year-end numbers.

The RAAA continues to build on its past successes while focusing on the progressive future of its strategic plan.
