Local Real Estate Professional Begins Term on PCDC Board
24 Feb 2021
A Holdrege native has been elected to replace Fred Diedrichsen on the Phelps County Development Corporation Board of Directors.
Jeff Moon, managing broker at AgWest Land Brokers, LLC, began his board service this month to help lead economic development activities in the county. Fred Diedrichsen has retired from the board after serving for eight years.
Moon graduated from Holdrege High School in 1995. He and his wife, Haley, also an HHS graduate, moved back because they wanted to raise their kids where they grew up.
Moon graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with an agribusiness degree and a master’s degree in geography. He is an accredited farm manager and accredited land consultant. He is a graduate of the Leadership Education/Action Development (LEAD) program in Class 33. He has worked in land real estate sales and management for more than 10 years in Nebraska.
Moon said Phelps County’s “hard-working and generous” people are its greatest asset. “They are people who want to provide a good life and place to live for their families.”
Continuing to provide good employment opportunities and housing for the next generation are two of the county’s biggest challenges when it comes to economic development, Moon said.
Moon said he is excited to be asked to serve on the PCDC board.
“The growth and success of Phelps County are important to me for the future of my kids and the next generation,” he said.
Moon said his experience in land real estate transactions will be an asset to the board.
“I’m committed to serving the community and this board where I am needed and bring the most value,” he said.
In addition to the PCDC board, Moon also serves on the Christian Homes board of directors and is the Holcomb Evangelical Church Awana Director.
Jeff and Haley, who works at Family Medical Specialties, live on a farm north of Holdrege and have two children; Jake, 12; and Jenna, 10. They are active in their kids’ school activities, sporting events and 4-H projects.
