Spencer Gibbons has recently been promoted to the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the Utah Farm Bureau Federation (UFBF). Gibbons spent the previous 17 years as the northern regional manager for the organization. In his new role, Gibbons will assume day-to-day management over operations and have a direct management function with staff. 

Gibbons grew up in Lewiston, Cache County on a multi-generational dairy farm and completed his Ag Business & Economics degree from Utah State University. Gibbons has continued to work at the family dairy. He and his wife Krista live in Richmond, Utah and have four children. 

“I look forward to this new challenge and am excited to see how we can further serve our members and connect all Utah families to the ‘Miracle of Agriculture’,” Gibbons said. “Our staff are dedicated to the mission of the Utah Farm Bureau, and I’m confident we’ll continue to deliver premium services to our members.” 

“We are excited to welcome Spencer in his new role with the Farm Bureau team,” said Dale Newton, Chief Executive Officer for UFBF. “He’s a quick learner and I’m confident he’ll deliver great work for our members.” 

Gibbons assumed his new position on July 1, working alongside Newton and Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Pratt as officers for the organization.
