Our Team

The Association is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by a CEO and the Senior Leadership Team. The organizational structure includes multiple departments including, but not limited to, credit analysts, loan officers, appraisers, compliance, accounting, support staff and administration.

Cape Fear Farm Credit shares the purpose to serve agriculture to enrich the lives of others. To accomplish this, the Association incorporates six culture behaviors: be a servant, be better, be gritty, be open, be present and be well.


Board of Directors

The Cape Fear Farm Credit Board consists of local farmers, rural community residents, and those that understand agriculture who are elected from our membership. As elected officials, directors represent the best interests of the organization and its borrowers.

Each year, there is an election process to select members for Cape Fear Farm Credit’s Board of Directors. The election process includes a regional nominating committee to ensure sound representation throughout our 12 county territory. Each spring, Cape Fear Farm Credit stockholders vote for all open board positions.
