Polly Ruhland, CEO of the United Soybean Board, will leave her position effective December 31, 2023.
Ruhland has led the organization for six years and played a pivotal role in driving significant organizational changes and setting a foundation for USB’s future.
“Polly has been a visionary leader for USB during a very transformative time,” said Meagan Kaiser, USB Chair. “A true servant-leader, her biggest contribution and lasting legacy is building a first-class staff that we can rely on.”
During the past six years, USB embarked on a transformative journey marked by numerous accomplishments and milestones, including developing and implementing a comprehensive strategic plan. The plan also reinforced USB’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and market development.
Kaiser will form a search committee to identify a new Chief Executive Officer. The committee will begin the search after USB’s July board meeting to have a new CEO in place by the end of 2023.
