Angus Hires Two to Communications Group

Ali Luety and Max Stewart Round Out the Team.


The American Angus Association announces two additions to the communications group. Ali Luety joins the team as a communications specialist, and Max Stewart joins as a video production specialist.


Stewart comes to the team to put his creative mind to work on producing high-quality videos for the Association. He has won many awards for his video work in the past, including first place in the Kansas State University 48 Hour Film Festival. Stewart has worked as a social media manager for Wildcat Watch out of Manhattan, Kansas, and student video producer for Kansas State University. He graduated from Kansas State University this past August with a bachelor’s degree in business management and entrepreneurship.


Luety joins the team from Agri-Pulse Communications where she had been interning since May. She graduated in 2017 from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s degree in public relations. During her time at Iowa State, Luety interned with Meredith Corporation as an editorial apprentice, as well as FarmHer and the American Farm Bureau Federation in their respective communications departments.


“We are very excited about the recent growth in our communications team,” said Clint Mefford, Association director of communications. “Ali and Max are extremely talented, and we are looking forward to what our young and creative team can do for the Association.”
