“We certainly look forward to continuing our collaboration with ASA under Ryan’s leadership,” stated USSEC CEO Jim Sutter. “We’re very fortunate to have gotten to know Ryan through his excellent work chairing USSEC’s industry utilization team in the market access area, and now we are excited to provide him with exposure to our ‘boots on the ground’ who build a preference for U.S. Soy in markets around the world.”

“ASA is extremely pleased to have found someone of Ryan’s caliber and experience to lead us into our next chapter as a first-class U.S. commodity organization,” said ASA President and USSEC Director John Heisdorffer, a soybean producer from Keota, Iowa. “Ryan’s background growing up on a farm and working for the Michigan Farm Bureau and for Syngenta give him the right combination of life and work experience that will serve ASA well in the coming years,” Mr. Heisdorffer stated.
