Logan Confirmed to FCA Board

Senate Ag Chair Debbie Stabenow and Ranking Member John Boozman announced that the U.S. Senate confirmed Vincent Logan to the Farm Credit Administration Board.

“His background in both the agriculture and financial sectors makes him well-qualified for this role,” Stabenow said. “He will be the first Native American to serve as a board member.” Ranking Member Boozman said he’s happy to see Logan’s confirmation. “His experience and expertise will help guide a mission that’s critical to the success of our family farmers, ranchers, and agriculture businesses. I look forward to working with him to provide dependable credit sources.”

Farm Credit Council President and CEO Todd Van Hoose offered congratulations to Mr. Logan on his confirmation and said they look forward to working with him. “He’s well-qualified to serve on the FCA Board, and we appreciate the Senate Agriculture Committee and the full Senate’s swift action to fill the board seat,” said Van Hoose.

The Senate wrapped up work Thursday to head home for campaigns without confirming Biden USDA undersecretary nominees Alexis Taylor for trade and Jose Emilio Esteban for food safety. Doug McKalip, Biden’s pick for Chief Agriculture Negotiator, is also awaiting full Senate confirmation.
