After serving 38 years as president of the National Chicken Council, George Watts will retire on March 31, 2011. Watts said his decision was based on a temporary medical condition that has limited his ability to travel and give 100% to his duties as president. NCC will initiate a search for Watt's successor with the help of a recruitment firm.
Watts says it has been a tremendous experience to be closely associated with the chicken industry, our allied industry members and this association for almost four decades. I have had the privilege of meeting and working with some of the most wonderful people anyone could ever hope to meet.
Watts is only the second full-time chief executive in the history of National Chicken Council.
