CEO Bob Smith Announces Retirement Plans

The Board of Directors of Farm Credit Southeast Missouri wishes to inform you that

President/CEO Bob Smith has announced his intention to retire October 31, 2020, after 42 years with the association.

Bob has worked with our Board over the past year and together we have created a thorough plan of action for transition and selection of the organization’s next CEO. A CEO Selection Committee comprised of Board members began the search process with a job posting earlier this month. They intend to complete their work by July and place the CEO Elect by mid-August, allowing time to overlap with Bob until his retirement. The Selection Committee will be assisted by Jay Lux, VP/Organizational Development, with FCC Services. Jay will provide professional executive selection expertise and will facilitate the candidate recruitment and selection process.

We want to congratulate Bob on his upcoming retirement. We greatly appreciate his leadership in building our organization structure and developing our employees. Bob has helped the organization achieve our current levels of success and ensure that a highly capable team of employees is in place for our organization to flourish and create tremendous value well beyond this selection process.
