Head of USDA's organic program steps down
The USDA’s National Organic Program will have new leadership as of October when Miles McEvoy steps down after eight years at the helm.
McEvoy, who has been deputy administrator of the National Organic Program within USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service, announced his departure in a Sept. 10 letter he said he sent to the “organic community.”
“I’m headed back home to Olympia, WA,” McEvoy wrote in the letter. “It has been an incredible honor to serve you and an extremely gratifying experience. I’ve been contemplating this move for the last few years, but now is the right time to move on."
Until Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue names a replacement, the organic program will be overseen by AMS acting Administrator Bruce Summers and acting Deputy Administrator Jenny Tucker.
McEvoy thanked organic certifiers, producers, processors and consumers for their work and participation in the organic movement.
