MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, U.S. – Kyle Egbert has been promoted to chief financial officer of Ceres Global Ag Corp. He succeeds Mark Kucala, who has stepped down from his position but will stay on with the company as manager of treasury, risk and process improvement.

Egbert most recently was vice-president of finance at Ceres. 

“For nearly a decade, Mark has been a stalwart supporter of our business,” said Robert Day, president and chief executive officer at Ceres. “Throughout his tenure, he has helped Ceres navigate through many changes and significant growth, including the development of our Northgate infrastructure, reaching more than 110 million bushels handled and doubling of revenues. Going forward, Mark will continue to provide leadership and support in the areas he is most passionate about; treasury and banking relationships, risk processes and procedures, and operations systems and reporting.” 

The appointment of Egbert to the role of CFO for Ceres was effective Oct. 1, 2017.

“Kyle has deep knowledge of our industry through previous positions held with Royal Dutch Shell in commodity trading, along with a depth of experience in financial reporting, valuation and controls and compliance,” Day said. “Kyle will assume responsibility for helping guide Ceres into the future and we wholeheartedly welcome him to the senior management team.”
