The National Corn Growers Association welcomes Marie Nelson as its new Director of Accounting and Administration. Nelson, who began last week, will be working with current Director of Accounting Darcy Wolf to prepare to assume responsibilities for this crucial area of work prior to Wolf’s retirement, which will come in late June of this year.
“It is bittersweet that Darcy will be retiring, and thus leaving us, in June,” said NCGA Vice President of Operations Fred Stemme. “At the same time, I am thrilled to be adding someone with Marie’s experience and credentials to the NCGA team. We all look forward to working with her and look forward with excited anticipation to seeing the improvements she will make.”
Nelson most recently served as Chief Financial Officer for Galen Insurance Company in St. Louis. Prior to that, she worked as an internal auditor for AMC Entertainment in Kansas City. Her career also includes time with DST Systems, Nova Star Financial and MetLife. Nelson earned a degree in Accounting from the University of Missouri-Columbia. She brings a strong skillset to the position as she is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor.
