Oklahoma Farm Bureau executive director steps down
In a sudden announcement made late July 15 afternoon, Oklahoma Farm Bureau and affiliated companies Executive Director Matt Wilson announced his retirement after 32 years of service to the Farm Bureau family.
"On behalf of Oklahoma Farm Bureau and affiliated companies, the board of directors wishes to thank Mr. Wilson for his more than 30 years of dedicated work," said Mike Spradling, president of OFB and affiliated companies. "His efforts have been instrumental in establishing OFB as a national leader in Farm Bureau and the agriculture industry."
The board appointed Monica Wilke, OFB and affiliated companies' general counsel, as acting executive director.
We talked with Mike Spradling on the phone briefly July 16 about this announcement--he indicated they would have more in Farm Bureau publications in the near future and would have some sort of event to honor the service that Matt has provided the organization--details of that also to come a little later.
