Mike Seyfert officially became president and CEO of the National Grain and Feed Association on March 1, stepping into the role after the retirement of Randy Gordon, who was an NGFA staff member for nearly 43 years, the last seven as president and CEO.
Seyfert most recently was director of government and industry affairs FMC Corp., the world’s fifth largest crop protection company.
Prior to joining FMC in February 2014, Seyfert worked from 1997-2013 on the staff of former Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., capped by serving two years as staff director of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee from 2011-13.
