In his new role as chief investment officer, Peters will focus on the Farm Bureau's investment portfolio, providing direction and advice on investment allocations, management and performance. He will also continue his role as secretary of the Farm Bureau, a duty he assumed in 1989.
"Farm Bureau is fortunate to have experienced leaders to manage its finances," CFBF President Doug Mosebar said.
