CHS has announced the appointment of Matt Broekemeier to serve as general manager for its Holdrege-based ag retail operations.
Broekemeier has been with the Holdrege operation since July 2013 when he started as sales development manager. He most recently served as agronomy division manager before stepping into the role of interim general manager this past July. Before that, he held roles with Aurora Cooperative as seed manager, assistant safety director and energy department risk management coordinator. He also worked for CHS previously as a certified energy specialist out of Elmwood, Nebraska, where he was responsible for increasing diesel volumes by more than 1 million gallons.
“Matt has a deep understanding and appreciation for the cooperative system as he has worked at several Nebraska cooperatives since 2004,” said Todd Christensen, producer board chair. “He knows this area well, and we look forward to working with him as we serve our farmer-owners through our 13 locations in south-central Nebraska and north-central Kansas.”
A native of Aurora, Nebraska, Broekemeier graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a management emphasis.
