American agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) announced Friday that Tedd Kruse was named president of ADM Milling. 

“Tedd’s extensive leadership experience and expertise will help us continue to grow and modernize our Milling business as we maintain our focus on expanding our customer value proposition and driving further operational efficiencies,” Chris Cuddy, president of ADM’s Carbohydrate Solutions business, said in a company release.

Kruse has worked with ADM since 1993, occupying a range of leadership roles in its sweeteners and food oils businesses. In 2011, he became president of a 50/50 joint venture between ADM and ACH Food Companies, Stratas Foods. He earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics from Iowa State University.

“We’ve made significant enhancements and improvements to our Milling business in recent years,” Cuddy said. “We realigned our production footprint in the Midwest, opening a state-of-the-art facility in Mendota and closing three older mills. We completed a major modernization of our mill in Enid. And we’re continuing to look for new opportunities to add value for our customers.”

The previous president of North American Milling, Kevin Like, is transitioning to a leadership role in the firm’s Key Account Management group, where he will focus on bakery accounts. Like was appointed to the position in July 2019 and led milling activities in the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.
