American Gelbvieh Association hires new executive director
The American Gelbvieh Association is pleased to announce the addition of Jim Gibb, Ph.D., as executive director to the AGA staff. Gibb lives in Louisville, Colo., and has been hired as the part-time executive director, effective immediately.
Gibb has a long-standing career in the beef industry working with seedstock and commercial beef producers. His work in the field of genomics and DNA testing has helped breeders and cattlemen identify quality genetics in their herds to help them make sound breeding decisions. Gibb brings an understanding of breed associations as he has previously worked for the American Polled Hereford Association and the American Gelbvieh Association.
"It is with great pride and inspiration the AGA announces the services of Dr. Jim Gibb in his role as executive director of the Association. Dr. Gibb's vast accumulated experience working with cattle associations, his wealth of knowledge with regard to genomics and national cattle evaluation, as well as his fond familiarity with Gelbvieh cattle and the American Gelbvieh Association qualifies him as the perfect fit to help propel the Gelbvieh breed and the AGA's membership into the forefront of the cattle industry," said Mark Goes, president of the American Gelbvieh Association. "His interpersonal skills and supervisory expertise will enhance and facilitate more effective and efficient performance in the areas of research and breed improvement, administration and promotion for the AGA and its membership."
The decision to hire an executive director for the AGA was made during the recent August meeting of the Association's Board of Directors. The Board approved to realign the management of the AGA from the matrix management system to executive director management.
Gibb will work out of the AGA headquarters office located in Westminster, Colo., on a part-time basis. For more information on the American Gelbvieh Association, visit www.gelbvieh.org or call 303-465-2333.
