At the end of 2018, Allen Summers will retire from being president of Asmark Institute. Summers served as president of the organization for 30 years during his 44 year career as a farmer, distributor, retailer and then founder of Asmark.

“Working at Asmark has been a privilege,” Summers said in a news release. “We worked with the best of the best, and with the full cooperation and support of our clients and affiliates, created solutions that filled needs. A hands-on approach to succession planning has resulted in knowing that we are leaving the organization in great hands.”

Looking ahead, Amber Duke will be the president/CEO. Megan Hill, manager of data and processes will replace Allen’s wife, Susan. Other management staff include Brian Mason, manager of accounting and finances and Eric Rasor, manager of website technology.
