The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) announced today that Christopher Jahn, current president of the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), will become its president on 9 September. Jahn will succeed Ford West, who will retire after 34 years with TFI.

“Chris’ experience in the security, environmental, and product stewardship arenas will enhance TFI’s advocacy on behalf of the fertilizer industry,” says Jim Prokopanko, president and CEO of Mosaic and current TFI chairman. “He has demonstrated the ability to enhance a trade association’s profile by building consensus within the community of members and with like-minded allied organizations. He will be a tremendous asset to the institute as we seek to further strengthen our members’ voice in Washington.”

Jahn will continue in his current role with NACD through late August. NACD says its board "will begin the search process to secure a replacement immediately." Jahn has been NACD president since 2006. Prior to that, he was president of the Contract Services Association and, before that, chief of staff to Senator Craig Thomas (R., WY).
