FCM Director Carl Loewer Retires
Thank You For Your Service
In February, Carl Loewer retired from the Farm Credit Midsouth Board of Directors after spending nearly three decades in service to the Association. Carl joined the board in 1992 representing Cross County.
A self-employed grain farmer, Carl helped lead FCM through a period of outstanding and considerable growth. Privately, he was the president of Loewer Brothers, Inc. and also vice president of Loewer Oaks Farms. Somehow, he also found time to serve the ag community as the Director of the Cross County Farm Bureau Board; and his greater community at large as a Justice of the Peace for the Cross County Quorum Court, and as commissioner of the Wynne Water Utilities.
Carl reports retirement is going well, though he’s still easing into it some. He’s been busy shutting things down and selling the remainder of his equipment; but not too busy, having recently taken up pickleball. He’d also like to think his golf game has improved a bit. A traveler at heart, Carl would like to travel abroad again once things open back up, possibly to England, a country he has not been to yet.
“I enjoyed all of my years on the Board,” said Carl, “It was an absolute privilege to do it. I met and worked with people I never would have otherwise, and we were able to accomplish a lot. I know they’ll continue to do so.”
In addition to his years as a director, Carl also served as board chair from February, 2009 to February, 2013. His expertise is already being missed by his fellow directors. Though we can’t imagine retirement is giving him too much opportunity to slow down, we hope it’s giving him more time spent on his own interests, both personal and professional. Thank you for your many years of service and friendship, Carl!
