Chad Besch, Energy Team Leader at MaxYield Cooperative, was recently elected to serve on the FUELIowa board. FUELIowa represents Iowa’s fuel industry by advocating for innovative and quality fuel options, consumer and environmental protection and fairness in the marketplace.

Besch graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Agricultural Studies. After a short stint working on his family’s farm he joined MaxYield’s grain department in 1999. In 2004 he transitioned into the role of Energy Team Leader, leading the cooperative’s diversified energy department.

“I am honored to be chosen for this open board seat to advocate for this great industry that represents the very best of Iowa’s economy,” said Besch. “In my career, I have found that solving challenges in a highly competitive marketplace is what I enjoy most, and I look forward to putting the same skillset and set of principles to use for the good of the entire industry through my position on the FUELIowa board.”
