VISALIA – The Citrus Research Board has launched a nationwide search for a new president for the organization and a search committee is being formed.

“This year marks the Citrus Research Board’s 50th anniversary,” Chairman Dan Dreyer said. “As we celebrate this milestone, we also are rededicating ourselves to do our utmost to ensure the success of the California citrus growers.”

Dreyer said that the Citrus Research Board also is continuing to ramp up its fight against huanglongbing, the deadliest citrus disease to date, which has devastated crops in other worldwide growing regions and potentially presents a critical threat to California citrus.

The new president will replace Gary Schulz, who served as president from 2015-2018. The board is hoping to have the new president in place by the end of the year.

“Our search committee will be looking for a strong, research-focused senior executive – a consensus builder who can lead the organization and the California citrus industry through this challenging time and significantly contribute to the sustainability of California growers,” Dreyer said.

The Citrus Research Board administers the California Citrus Research Program, the grower-funded and grower-directed program established in 1968, enabling the state’s citrus producers to sponsor and support needed research. More information about the Citrus Research Board may be found at
