Chicken Industry Leader To Retire

Chicken Industry Leader To Retire

NCC president stepping down.

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.
