The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) announced Jon Doggett as the organization next CEO, taking the place of Chris Novak. Doggett is the fifth CEO in the organization’s 61-year history. The change is effective immediately.
He has served as interim CEO since August first when Novak left for CropLife America. Doggett has also served as executive vice president of the organization since 2014, and before that, served as vice president of public policy, leading public policy efforts in Washington, DC since 2002.
NCGA President Kevin Skunes says Doggett’s skills in agriculture and policy are “invaluable to our organization.” NCGA says Doggett has substantial knowledge of production agriculture and agribusiness, as well as more than 30 years of agricultural policy and leadership experience.
Before joining NCGA, Doggett served 11 years at the American Farm Bureau Federation, where he was AFBF’s lead lobbyist on several public policy issues, including ethanol, climate change, land use, conservation, and endangered species.
