Cole Iaquinto grew up in Clio, north of Flint in northern Genesee County. His Farm Bureau career began as one of our 12 field staffers, up in the northernmost reaches of the Lower Peninsula.
“I spent almost ten years living in northern Michigan serving as MFB’s North Regional Manager, working with many wonderful farming members in those seven counties.
“I didn’t have an agriculture background, but with time I visited and spoke to many patient farmers who were willing to tell their stories and help me understand the basics,” Cole explained. “I developed a great appreciation and admiration for the hard-working members we get to serve every day.”
Then a couple years ago he changed gears, taking on a key role in MFB’s Field Operations division at the home office in Lansing.
“Currently I serve as the member benefits and relations manager. We work to serve members by promoting the value of membership and work with partners to provide great member savings benefits.”
Outside Farm Bureau, Cole is an avid outdoorsman, hunting large game in state and out west in addition to fishing, camping, hiking, skiing and golfing.
