ASA begins search for new leader

Former CEO Steve Censky is now Deputy Agriculture Secretary.

The American Soybean Association has officially opened its search for its next CEO.

“ASA has been a constant voice for soybean farmers, and as we approach our centennial, we will need a steady, assertive and visionary hand at the helm of our association,” said ASA President Ron Moore. “We have put a national search framework in place to search for the most qualified candidates from both inside and outside the industry, and we will begin reviewing materials from those candidates immediately.” 

ASA has retained Hedlin Ag Enterprises to receive resumes from interested candidates and lead the ASA Search Committee through the search and interview process. Those interested in the position can view a description and submit materials by clicking here.

Steve Censky officially departed ASA Oct. 10 after 23 years to become Deputy Secretary of Agriculture. Censky spent 21 years as head of ASA.

Moore said that while bittersweet, the process of carrying the industry forward must continue without interruption.

“We can’t thank Steve enough for the legacy he leaves here at ASA. We are a more effective and representative advocate for soybean farmers because of him,” added Moore. “He leaves big and well-worn shoes to fill—this isn’t an easy job, but it’s a rewarding one. We look to the candidates for the CEO position to bring their innovation and experience and novel concepts for advancing the soybean industry to us.”
