Sprawling Leadership: Still Elected Chairman of CoBank Board

Jan 21, 2022
Co-Alliance President and CEO Kevin Still understands that having a strong rural community means you’ve created a landscape that allows families and businesses to thrive because of the opportunities provided to them. This is done by supporting the initiatives that strengthen local businesses, creating opportunities for the next generation to come back to, or remain in, this area and investing money into areas that sustain the people of the region. 

That’s why Still believes so strongly in the work that CoBank does, being one of the largest private providers of credit to the U.S. rural economy with a book of over $155 billion. The bank delivers loans, leases and other financial services to agribusiness, rural infrastructure and Farm Credit customers in all 50 states.

Still’s expansive leadership capacity and style has been noted and recently Kevin was elected as the Chairman of the CoBank Board. This is a great honor for Kevin and one in which he will have quite an impact. 

“I am honored to be elected as the new board chair for CoBank and look forward to working closely with the board and management in the coming year.” Still said. “We are dedicated to fulfilling our mission across the Farm Credit System and leveraging our long-term financial strength to deliver dependable credit and financial services to our customers.”
Kevin has been on CoBank’s Board of Directors since 2002, affording him the opportunity to evaluate businesses across the country. From ag retail cooperatives like ours, to electric cooperatives and even Christmas tree farms, CoBank provides the financial resources to keep America’s businesses running.

CoBank is a $155 billion cooperative bank serving vital industries across rural America, providing loans, leases, export financing and other financial services to agribusinesses and rural power, water and communications providers in all 50 states. The bank also provides wholesale loans and other financial services to affiliated Farm Credit associations serving more than 75,000 farmers, ranchers and other rural borrowers in 23 states around the country.
For 33 years, Co-Alliance has been lead by Still and completely committed to local communities and the success of our member-owners during his tenure. Our vision and mission centers around the value of our small towns and entrepreneurial spirit of our farm families. We are proud and encouraged to have Still serving in such a capacity while he continues to lead at Co-Alliance as our CEO.
