    A reputable and financially sound agricultural cooperative in Eastern Iowa is seeking a General Manager to replace their retiring GM. This solid agricultural leader will have direct knowledge of managing a diverse agricultural facility and will excel in communicating with customers and team members alike.

    In this multi-division agricultural company, training, delegating to, and trusting other leaders in the company are critical. Building trust among the division heads in grain, feed, agronomy and retail, and motivating the entire team to success are crucial. Managing people and your time to know and do what needs done is key, as is being financially knowledgeable and responsible, including knowing how to budget and plan for the different locations and divisions to grow and stay competitive.

    This individual will be a diversely skilled manager who enjoys working with and motivating team members to grow new and existing business and to build a positive, safety-first culture. Excellent people leadership skills, the ability to run two key locations, and a strong work ethic to set the tone for the team are all traits that will serve you well.

    The successful candidate will have agricultural facility management experience from at minimum being a grain elevator or feed department leader or a Location Manager at a multi-site agricultural business. Existing knowledge or exposure to grain elevators and grain marketing, agronomy, feed mills, retail and fuel is ideal. The willingness to learn all segments of the business and the drive and desire to lead this company are a must.

    This cooperative is stable and committed to staying relevant and profitable for years to come; it has a supportive board that listens, cares about the staff and company, and does not micro-manage. They have a long, 100+ year history of successfully meeting their customers' needs and continue to be a good, strong business that is seeking to expand.

    This unique opportunity offers potential for growth and success for an individual who wants to put down roots in eastern Iowa and desires an opportunity to lead to the next level a locally-owned, community-oriented business with a hard working team of people already in place.

    In this role, you will be your own boss in a company with a good environment and ample personal and professional growth opportunity available. You will live in a nice area of rural Iowa with great people, schools, and communities while being within a short drive to multiple larger, urban areas that offer a wide variety of recreational and cultural options.

    Compensation will be a competitive salary with excellent benefits and an incentive package.

    Applications for this position will be accepted through mid-May, 2024. Interviews will be held in late June or early July.

    Are you energetic, outgoing and self-motivated to run a company as if it is your own? Do you have some successful experiences in grain, feed, agronomy, and / or fuel?

    If so, and you are an agribusiness leader seeking a long-term opportunity in eastern Iowa that offers a fresh and exciting challenge where you can put a positive mark on the business, contact Dave Allen today.
