ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, U.S. — CHS Inc. announced on July 29 that Larry Fuller, national account director - selection services for CHS Aligned Solutions, will retire in January 2017. Through a career that spanned more than 45 years, Fuller has maintained a steadfast commitment to cooperatives and the value they bring to their farmer-owners, CHS said. 

Fuller started his career with the agronomy department at the local co-op in Napoleon, North Dakota, U.S. He soon became the agronomy department manager and held that position until he joined the then Cenex as an agronomy representative in 1976. He moved through progressively responsible management positions in agronomy, energy, member services and now with Aligned Solutions as head of selection services.  

“In his current role, Larry put his deep knowledge of agribusiness to work helping local cooperatives find, recruit and transition talent for key leadership positions,” said Mark Biedenfeld, vice-president, CHS Aligned Solutions. “I’m sure many of us can point to successful co-ops across the U.S. and recognize the huge impact Larry played on the careers of the people running them.”

Fuller also served on many agricultural and cooperative association boards, including the North Dakota Agricultural Association, as well as the Mountain Region Managers and North Dakota Cooperative Managers’ Association.  He was on the first board that established the ND Petroleum Tank cleanup fund.
