During his tenure as CEO of FCSAmerica from 2005 to 2018, Stark worked to improve the firm’s internal culture, finances, professional development, and business processes and technology. Profits increased from $100 million to $550 million while he was in the role, according to Scoular’s release. He also furthered innovation efforts at the company, including the development of technology-driven credit processes. 

“Doug built a dynamic operation by leveraging technology, developing employee culture, and strengthening FCSAmerica’s financial stability,” Scoular CEO Paul Maass said in a statement. “Those focus areas align with Scoular’s objectives, making Doug a great fit for our board. I am looking forward to the addition of Doug’s perspectives and insights to our board as we make well-rounded decisions and innovate in the agriculture industry.”
