John Starkey announces retirement as USPOULTRY president
TUCKER, Ga. — After approximately 15 years at the helm of the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, John Starkey has announced his upcoming retirement. He has been USPOULTRY president since 2007, succeeding the retirement of Don Dalton.
“While such a decision is never easy, the time has come for me to step aside,” Starkey said. “USPOULTRY is a great organization, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to contribute throughout my career and for the last 23 years as a member of the staff.”
Starkey initially joined the association in 2000 in what was the newly established role of vice president, environmental programs. He had also been active with the group throughout his career as a seminar speaker and as a member of committees.
