Angus Promotes Kenny Miller to Chief Financial Officer
Miller takes over after long-time CFO Rich Wilson retires.
The American Angus Association announces the promotion of Kenny Miller to chief financial officer. He started the position on Oct. 16 after Rich Wilson, chief financial officer of 48 years, retired.
“The Association will be well served by Kenny’s steady hand as its chief financial officer,” said Allen Moczygemba, American Angus Association CEO. “He’s spent the past dozen years working closely with retired CFO Rich Wilson and understands the Association’s finances intimately. I’m excited that Kenny will be serving as our CFO in the years to come.”
Miller first started at the Association in April of 2004 as the assistant director of finance. Then, in 2008, he was promoted to director of finance, which he held for nine years. Prior to his time at Angus, he worked as an audit associate with Clifton Gunderson, now Clifton Larson Allen.
“I am excited to serve the great Angus membership and look forward to the challenge and opportunity,” Miller said. “It is my goal to continue to service the financial matters of this great Association with the same drive, determination, diligence and professionalism that this membership has experienced and deserves. I am truly honored.”
Since Miller joined Angus, a lot has changed. Angus Genetics Inc.® (AGI) was formed and started operations. Angus Productions Inc. (API) has developed a digital presence, and the Angus Foundation has seen substantial growth to support Angus youth, education and research. But, Miller is most proud of the collaborative Angus team and their continued focus on what matters: serving members.
“The Association as a whole has had its share of challenges over the past 13 years, from genetic conditions to severe weather to economic downturns, but we have been able to successfully navigate those and continue to build and retain our position as an industry leader,” he said. “We will continue to strive to provide the membership with the tools and information they deserve and need to be successful.”
The Missouri native graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in 2000 with a bachelor of science in accounting and then obtained a master’s degree with an accounting emphasis in 2002. Miller spent eight years in the Army National Guard and has been a licensed certified public accountant in Missouri since 2004.
