CHS Inc. CEO Carl Casale To Deliver Keynote Address At 2013 Soy & Grain Trade Summit

BOSTON, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl Casale, president and chief executive officer of CHS Inc., a leading energy, grains and foods company, will deliver the keynote address at the 8 th annual Soy & Grain Trade Summit, to be held in Minneapolis, Minn., on October 21-23, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency.

Casale will deliver his presentation, "Staying Relevant in a Rapidly Changing World" during the opening plenary session on October 22.  He will discuss how a large organization such as CHS identifies and selects opportunities in the marketplace and how it is adapting its organizational structure and marshaling resources to pursue them.  According to Casale, "The most important driver of our success will not be to implement a strategy developed in a vacuum but rather how well we execute a focused business strategy based on reality that addresses the needs of all our stakeholders."

As CEO of CHS, a Fortune 100 company owned by farmers, ranchers and cooperatives across the U.S with corporate offices in Inver, Minnesota, Casale is responsible for leading the organization during a period of rapid change in the global energy, grain and food ingredient supply chains.

Casale joined CHS as CEO in January 2011 following 26 years in the global agribusiness sector, most notably with Monsanto, Inc. as CFO.  He has served on the board of the National 4-H Council and currently serves on the boards of the National Cooperative Refinery Association, Ventura Foods, the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, Greater Twin Cities United Way and the Minnesota Business Partnership.

"We are delighted to welcome Mr. Casale as our keynote speaker at this year's Summit," said Philippe de Laperouse, event chair and managing director at HighQuest Partners, the global agribusiness strategic advisory firm hosting the Soy & Grain Trade Summit.  "His sharing of his perspective on trends and opportunities in the global agricultural marketplace and CHS' experience as a supplier of energy, crop nutrients, grain marketing services, livestock feed, food and food ingredients and more through its domestic and global operations will be invaluable to the attendees at the Summit."

Additionally, attendees will have access to networking with a rarely-assembled, cross-section of key representatives, from merchandisers to traders to shippers and end customers, providing unique opportunities to negotiate business face-to-face for oilseeds (soft seeds and tropical oils), feed grains and their derivative products.
