Midwest Dairy, the checkoff organization representing over 4,000 dairy farmers in a ten-state region, officially announced that Corey Scott of Marine on Saint Croix, Minn. has been named its new Chief Executive Officer. Scott is an accomplished dairy leader with more than 15 years of food and agriculture experience.

Scott will begin her tenure at Midwest Dairy on March 13, 2024. She will be transitioning from retiring CEO Molly Pelzer, who announced her departure last fall.

“I am excited for this new chapter in Midwest Dairy's long history of excellent CEO leaders,” says Charles Krause, Midwest Dairy Chairman. “I look forward to working with Corey on the many opportunities we have to serve our family dairy farms.”

Before joining Midwest Dairy, Scott served as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Athian and held several leadership positions for over 15 years with Land O’Lakes and its sustainability division, Truterra LLC.

Scott received her Executive MBA and undergraduate degrees from the University of Minnesota and the Carlson School of Business. In 2023, she was selected as one of GreenBiz's 12 Women Cultivating Sustainable Food Systems and earned a U.S. Dairy Sustainability Award for her work in reducing dairy's overall environmental footprint.

“I am honored to serve as CEO for Midwest Dairy and work on behalf of dairy farmers across our ten-state region,” Scott says. “I have worked with dairy farmers throughout my career and am always struck by the passion they show for their cows, the environment and our communities. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to lead such a respected organization and support the hard work of both staff and farmers.”
