Tracey Koester Becomes Publisher and Advertising Director of the Red Angus Magazine

Tracey Koester recently began a new position at the Red Angus Association of America as publisher and advertising director of the Red Angus Magazine. Koester stepped into this role after the unexpected passing of former publisher and advertising director, Kevin LeMaster.

Koester brings more than two decades of experience to the job. Not only did she previously serve as the editorial coordinator for the Red Angus Magazine for seven years, but she has also worked at the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association and owns Cow Camp Promotions, a successful design and communications business. With Koester at the helm, the Red Angus Magazine is already in the process of making several updates to the design and style of the publication, while maintaining the historical grounding and traditions of past decades.

Koester has been with RAAA since 2008 before accepting the promotion to publisher and advertising director.
