NCPA and IEC announce new CEO

Mindy Larsen starts her new role in July.

The North Central Poultry Association (NCPA) and the Iowa Egg Council (IEC) are pleased to announce the appointment of Mindy Larsen as the new chief executive officer for both organizations. Larsen will assume her new role on July 2, following the retirement of the current CEO, Kevin Stiles.

Larsen expressed her enthusiasm upon being selected, stating, “Growing up on a family farm with row crops and livestock, my appreciation and passion for agriculture is deep-rooted. It is an honor to have been chosen to lead the North Central Poultry Association and Iowa Egg Council. I am excited to build on the success of these two great organizations and look forward to working with our members and partners in agriculture to further advocate for our poultry industry.”

Larsen brings nearly two decades of experience from her role as vice president of government relations for the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA). Her extensive background includes serving on the ICGA management team and coordinating and implementing both state and federal policies. Prior to her tenure at the ICGA, she worked for the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, advocating for farmers, and at the Beving Law Firm, specializing in agricultural law.

Larsen holds a Juris Doctor (JD) degree from Drake University, where she also earned her undergraduate degree in political science, graduating with honors.

Dr. Craig Rowles, NCPA board president, commented, “While we are sorry to see Kevin retire, we know that we have placed the responsibility of the NCPA and IEC in very capable hands and it’s a pleasure to welcome Mindy Larsen.”
