NCGA Announces National Search for New CEO

The National Corn Growers Association Board of Directors has hired Hedlin Ag Enterprises of Ankeny, Iowa to assist with the search for a new CEO. The initial part of the search involves identifying and vetting potential candidates for the position which will occur through the end of this year and into the beginning of 2023. Candidate interviews for the CEO position will be held in February with the intention of introducing the new CEO during Commodity Classic in March.

“We have been very thoughtful and put a lot of time and effort into this process,” said NCGA President Tom Haag. “We started with a task force who developed the qualities and characteristics we want in our next CEO and now a search committee will work with Hedlin Ag Enterprises on finding the next leader of our organization to help us meet the many challenges we face.”

The board will entertain both internal and external candidates. Anyone interested in applying for the CEO position with NCGA can email their resume (cover letter optional) to Kevin Drury with Hedlin Ag Enterprises. You can reach Kevin at or by calling 515-964-7997.

“I want to publicly thank our current CEO, Jon Doggett, for his time with the organization,” Haag said. “Jon has worked for NCGA for more than 20 years as our Vice President of Public Policy, Executive Vice President and since 2018, as CEO. He has more than 30 years of agricultural policy experience. Jon made his intentions known to the board earlier this year and his last day with the organization will be December 31, 2022.”

The NCGA management team will oversee the association between the end of 2022 and the arrival of our next CEO.
