Kincannon & Reed announces unexpected death of its chairman

February 6, 2019 |

In Virginia, Kincannon & Reed announced the passing of its chairman Gregory J. Duerksen. Greg died unexpectedly in Richmond, VA on Thursday, Jan. 31. Greg joined Kincannon & Reed in 2001 and became chairman and CEO in 2007.

Part of Greg’s long-term vision for the firm was evolving the leadership structure to expand the partner group and bring in a food executive as president and CEO for day-to-day management, allowing Greg to move into the Chairman role and focus on what he loved:  building relationships with clients and industry leaders.  These transitions have positioned the firm well, enabling the organization to continue with the strategies and vision that Greg fostered.

Greg believed that those working in food and agriculture serve a noble purpose, and he had a deep understanding of the prominent role effective executives play in the success of every organization in the food value chain. His ever-present passion for recruiting leaders for organizations that feed the world and keep it healthy will live on in the firm.
