MEDFORD, WISCONSIN, US — Medford Cooperative announced on Aug. 24 that Jake Korzeniewski is joining the organization as the new director of Agricultural Services.

Medford Cooperative has more than 110 years of expertise in serving agricultural producers.

“Our Ag Services division continues to experience significant growth due to the trust and confidence our customers place in the services that we provide,” the co-op said. “We have doubled our feed tons since 2011, tripled our grain storage in the last five years, and more than doubled the number of employees in the last 10 years to provide the highest level of customer service.”

Korzeniewski joins Medford Cooperative with several years of experience in the field, which include roles as director of grain operations and logistics and production supervisor at facilities in South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The organization said Korzeniewski will be responsible for implementing programs and strategies that will continue to build upon its double-digit growth rates “by elevating the customer experience that we provide, increase efficiencies through disciplined cost management, and effective procurement of raw materials, while executing essential safety protocols.”

"We are excited to have Jake join the Medford Cooperative team,” said Chris Piotrowski, chief executive officer and general manager of Medford Cooperative. “I am confident that Jake’s knowledge and strong background in grain services will help us in the advancement of services we are able to provide to our agricultural customers.”
