The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation recently named Pete Leonard of Westerville as its chief information officer, a newly created leadership position in the organization.
Prior to joining the OFB staff, Leonard was in an information technology leadership role at Nationwide for 10 years. He has been in IT consulting for more than 20 years with HP, Covansys and Claremont Technology Group. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
“Pete believes that IT is more than a cost of doing business, but that IT can provide the means for doing all aspects of OFBF business better,” says Adam Sharp, OFB executive vice president. “Creating this new role is an indication of the central role technology will have in our organization to serve our members today and for years to come.”
Leonard and his wife, Bonnie, are parents of two grown daughters, Rachael and Sarah. He is a 20-year member of the Delaware County Farm Bureau.
