FOSTORIA - Ag Credit' Board of Directors selected Brian Ricker as chief operations officer at their August board meeting. Ricker will assume these duties on Tuesday.
Neil Jordan, CEO, announced his retirement effective Feb. 1, 2014. Ricker will step into the CEO position at that time.
"I am honored for the opportunity to serve our cooperative in this role and look forward to a smooth transition" said Ricker.
Ricker, age 44, is now chief credit officer, a position he has held for the past year. He has more than 16 years of experience with the Farm Credit System, becoming the branch manager for Ag Credit's Van Wert office in 1997 and then moving into the position of relationship manager in 2009.
Ricker earned his bachelor of science in agriculture from Ohio State University in 1988. He earned his master's degree in executive management from Ashland University in 1998. Prior to beginning his career with Ag Credit, Ricker was the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation organization director for Defiance, Paulding, Putnam and Van Wert counties.
"We were fortunate to have excellent candidates," said Jerry Layman, chairman of the Ag Credit Board. "Each of them brought a wealth of experiences to the table and skills we would have been comfortable with."
Ricker added, "As a customer-owned cooperative following our mission of returning profits, serving our rural community and building lifetime relationships, will continue to be the foundation for our cooperative's future success."
