Steve Censky will soon return to the American Soybean Association for his second stint as CEO after the person who succeeded him was abruptly removed after little more than two years on the job.
Censky will rejoin ASA in early November, the association announced Sept. 18. He had previously led the organization for 21 years before stepping down in 2017 to become deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
ASA is a $26 million-revenue organization headquartered in St. Louis, but also with an office in Washington, D.C.
“ASA is in many ways home, and I’m excited about working with both new and familiar faces in St. Louis and D.C. and building on the great changes accomplished since I was last there,” Censky said in a statement.
