Mark Watte, a Tulare, California cotton producer, who was elected chairman of Cotton Incorporated at the joint Cotton Board/Cotton Incorporated Board meeting in December, 2015, succeeds outgoing chairman B.B. Griffin of North Carolina, Cotton Incorporated said in a press release.

Watte has served as a director on the Cotton Incorporated Board of Directors for over 20 years, and is active in many cotton organizations including the California Cotton Growers and Ginners Association. He will serve a two-year term as Cotton Incorporated Chairman.

"Mark's experience as a cotton grower and as an officer in numerous cotton organizations gives him a keen understanding of the challenges and opportunities for cotton at this point in the industry's history," said J. Berrye Worsham, President and CEO of Cotton Incorporated.

Mark Watte is a partner in George Watte & Sons, a 3,000-acre mixed crop farm in Tulare, California. Since graduating from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Osispo with a degree in Agricultural Business in 1974, Watte has distinguished himself as a leader within the California agricultural community and the US cotton industry.

Over the course of his career Watte has received numerous recognitions, including: 2000 Tulare Farmer of the Year (an award shared with his brother and business partner, Brian Watte); 2013 Tulare Man of the Year; Tulare County Agriculturist of the Year; and is a recipient of the 2015 High Cotton Award, presented by Delta Farm Press.
