Two experienced financial professionals have been named to new positions with the California Farm Bureau Federation (CFBF). Mary Winn has been appointed treasurer of the organization and Joseph Peters has been appointed chief investment officer.

As treasurer, Winn oversees the Farm Bureau’s financial resources and manages the organization’s Administrative Division, which includes the Human Resources, Financial Services, Membership, Information Technology, and Building Operation departments.

She has been assistant treasurer of CFBF since 2004 and joined the organization in 1984 as accounting supervisor. She succeeds Peters, who has served as CFBF treasurer since 1984. In his new role as chief investment officer, Peters will focus on CFBF’s investment portfolio, providing direction and advice on investment allocations, management and performance.

He will also continue his role as secretary of CFBF, a duty he assumed in 1989. “Farm Bureau is fortunate to have experienced leaders to manage its finances,” CFBF President Doug Mosebar said. “Mary Winn and Joe Peters have worked together for many years to keep our organization strong. In their new roles, they will assure that Farm Bureau maintains the resources it needs to serve our members.” — WLJ
