Cunningham succeeds Rice as CEO of Farm Credit of Florida.

Gregory Cunningham is the new CEO of Farm Credit of Florida, a cooperative of 2,300 members and with a $925 million loan portfolio. He succeeds Don Rice, who has retired after a career spanning more than 30 years with the Farm Credit System.

"Greg comes to our association with 26 years of financial experience and a strong agricultural background," says Woody Larson, the co-op's board chairman. "We anticipate our members will benefit from his experience in the commercial banking industry, combined with his 22 years of Farm Credit service."

Cunningham was previously CEO of Legacy Ag Credit. He started his career as a loan officer with the Federal Land Bank Association of Lake Providence, Louisiana, then became branch manager/corporate loan manager for Carolina Farm Credit and worked for several other farm lenders. Cunningham grew up in Louisiana on a cattle ranch and was an avid 4-H and FFA participant. He is an alumnus of Louisiana Tech University and served for 21 years in the Army National Guard in North Carolina and Louisiana.

As one of the largest agricultural lenders in Florida, Farm Credit of Florida's portfolio includes many of Florida's leading agribusinesses. Headquartered in West Palm Beach, the cooperative has 11 service centers throughout the state and has 140 employees.
