Jill Bennwitz has been promoted to Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Executive Assistant.
Bennwitz will bring 35 years of work experience to her new role between the Madison-based Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and its insurance affiliate, Rural Mutual Insurance Company. She has served as an administrative assistant for the Farm Bureau’s Operations Division since 1999. She held various positions at Rural Mutual for 18 years prior.
“Jill knows our organization and understands our culture,” said Dale Beaty, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s Chief Administrative Officer. “She is one of the most hard-working people I know, and she is committed to achieving excellence in everything she does. Her experience, administrative talents, and customer service skills make her a great fit for this position.”
As Executive Assistant, her responsibilities will include providing direct support for WFBF’s President and Chief Administrative Officer, administrative support for the 11-member WFBF Board of Directors and assist with preparations for the WFBF Annual Meeting.
“I’m extremely excited for this new opportunity to continue my work with Farm Bureau and its members,” Bennwitz said.
She and her husband, Tom, live in Verona and have two adult children, Kristina and Kyle. A native of Elmwood in Pierce County, Bennwitz grew up on her parents’ dairy farm with six siblings.
Bennwitz begins her new duties on March 14. She succeeds Becky Schollian who will retire from Farm Bureau on April 29.
