Deputy Ag Secretary Censky to return to ASA

USDA Deputy Ag Secretary Stephen Censky is leaving the agency to return to the helm of the American Soybean Association.  Censky was with ASA for 21 years before leaving in October 2017 to serve as the USDA’s Deputy Secretary of Agriculture. 

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue says the Department will miss Censky’s experience, preparedness, and steady leadership.

Censky says it’s a privilege to return to ASA and represent the nation’s soybean growers and he’s excited to work with both new and familiar faces in St. Louis and Washington, D.C. 

Censky will return to ASA on November 9 and will resume duties as CEO following Ryan Findlay’s departure in June. 

Censky had served at USDA previously under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.  He grew up on a soybean, corn, and diversified livestock farm near Jackson, Minnesota.
