Central Valley Ag Announces Casey Potter as SVP of Grain

Feb 25, 2020

Central Valley Ag (CVA) is pleased to announce Casey Potter as Senior Vice President of Grain. He will be responsible for leading the grain division of CVA, focused on providing the best markets to local producers in the challenging grain marketing environment. Potter joined CVA in 2019 as the Merchandising Manager and was previously the Commercial Manager for the Columbus, Neb. ethanol plant for ADM.
 
“Casey has more than 19 year’s experience in the grain business focused around merchandising of grain and grain assets within the cooperative and public sectors,” said Carl Dickinson, CEO/President of Central Valley Ag. “I am very excited to have him join our leadership team. He has been a terrific asset to CVA over the past year and we look forward to having him take the lead of the grain department.”
 
Central Valley Ag’s grain division has access to every major market west of the Mississippi, allowing them to provide competitive bids to patrons. Potter will lead the CVA Grain Specialists who are the frontline grain buyers for the company. These individuals engage producers in everyday grain transactions, providing non-traditional contracting alternatives to find the best way for customers to sell their grain in addition to purchasing grain.
 
“I am excited to have the privilege to lead a talented group of people at CVA and be part of the cooperative system again,” said Potter. “I look forward to the responsibility of being a steward of CVA’s grain assets and the opportunity to continue to create value for our patrons.”
 
Potter holds a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics and agribusiness from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Potter, his wife Jennifer, and their four children reside on their family’s farm outside of Valparaiso, Neb.
