John C. Jones has been promoted to senior vice president of GreenStone Farm Credit Services’ commercial lending unit. Jones assumed his new role on March 1, following the retirement of longtime GreenStone employee, Rick Schroeder.

As the senior vice president of GreenStone’s commercial lending unit, Jones will manage a portfolio that includes approximately $1 billion of loan commitments.

“John’s experience in GreenStone’s commercial lending unit will help make his transition into this new role seamless,” said Jack Kelly, executive vice president of customer delivery. “During his time at GreenStone, John has shown he is an exceptional leader and I am confident he will continue to provide our customers with the care and quality service they have come to expect from GreenStone.”

“I am eager to meet the challenges that this new role will bring,” said Jones. “I am proud to have the opportunity to lead a great team of professionals who are all extremely passionate about the agricultural industry and our customers.

“I am also very fortunate to have been able to work with and learn from many great teammates throughout my tenure at GreenStone.”

Jones, a veteran GreenStone employee, has more than 25 years of service with the cooperative. He most recently served as a commercial lending unit vice president and has held a variety of positions during his tenure, ranging from credit analyst to financial services officer.

Jones is a graduate of Michigan State University (MSU) where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in finance. He has also successfully completed Farm Credit Council’s Foundations of Management program.

Jones is a resident of East Lansing, Michigan and enjoys spending his spare time with his three sons. He is also an avid MSU Spartans fan and enjoys following the Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers.
