Taieb Named USGC Middle East and Africa Director

The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ramy Taieb to the position of Middle East and Africa Director in its Tunis office.

Taieb has served as the commodity purchasing manager for Poulina, Tunisia's largest grain importer and poultry company, for the past 12 years, working with the company in total for more than two decades.

In that position, he participated in numerous Council marketing programs and gained familiarity with Council operations as well as global grain markets.

"Having worked with Ramy over the years, we are excited to have him join the USGC team," said Kurt Shultz, senior director of global strategies, who oversees USGC's programs in the region. "His extensive knowledge of regional grain suppliers, exports and the realities of the local poultry and feed grain markets will enhance the Council's targeted marketing programs in the region."

Taieb began work for the Council in Tunis on Jan. 1.
