His responsibilities at TFI will include oversight of TFI’s finance, human resources, membership,
conference services, information technology and office operations.
“Kurt’s almost 30 years of association management experience will be a tremendous asset to TFI as
we move forward and continue to serve as an advocate for the fertilizer industry,” said TFI President
Chris Jahn. “With his understanding of and commitment to member service, Kurt will make a great

The newly created position of vice president of member services and chief administrative officer
consolidates the responsibilities of TFI Director of Administration and Finance Carol Dorrough, who
will be retiring in the spring, with the member services responsibilities held by TFI Vice President of

responsibilities will be assumed by a new staff member in the government relations department
whom TFI will hire in the near future.
