AEB CEO announces plans to step down

February 20, 2020

Anne Alonzo, AEB’s president & CEO, is resigning effective mid-April 2020. In a letter to AEB board members, Alonzo said, “Please know that it was an extraordinarily difficult decision to reach—I genuinely love my team, AEB members and the egg industry. I was not looking to leave. A challenging professional opportunity recently found me, though, affording a unique opportunity to join a newly-public agriculture company and lead its Washington, D.C. office.” Alonzo also thanked AEB past and present chairs and her staff and leadership team.

In sharing the news with the board, AEB Chair Jeff Hardin said: “Anne substantially transformed and strengthened the AEB — AEB is in a much better place. We are so very grateful for her dedication, many contributions and friendship. We will miss her lots but we're happy for her new opportunity.”

Alonzo has been president & CEO since 2016 and will remain with AEB to assist with its annual meeting and the White House Easter Egg Roll.  Read Alonzo’s letter to board here.
