Leadership & Board of Directors

At Landmark Services Cooperative, one of our greatest assets is the strength and experience of our senior leadership team. Their passion for building a successful cooperative, helping members thrive, and supporting the growth and well-being of employees are essential to fulfilling Landmark’s mission.

The Landmark Board of Directors plays a crucial and very active role in the governance of Landmark by, serving members and steering strategy and financial direction along with our leadership team. In addition, Landmark actively supports the professional development of our board members. This includes facilitating their successful completion of FCC’s Advanced Governance Series training (https://www.fccservices.com/training/board-development/advanced-governance-series), an unparalleled development program designed for cooperatives, which combines courses on leadership decision-making along with high-caliber interaction with peers and subject matter experts.

Every member of our board is an active farm operator and producer, while our management team brings extensive experience and perspective from various sectors, including agriculture, consulting, and technology. We invite you to learn more about our leadership team and board by reading their bios below.
