The Deere & Co. board of directors recently elected John C. May to the position of Chief Executive Officer, effective Nov. 4. Samuel R. Allen, the current CEO and chairman, will continue as chairman after he steps down from the CEO position. May becomes the 10th chief executive in the company's 182-year history.

A question for all dealers (those who carry John Deere or other manufacturers): “If you had the chance, what would you ask John C. May?”
