|The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) recently promoted two accounting team members in the organization’s Washington, D.C., headquarters: Mevis Clarck and Milla Par.|
Clarck received the new title of accounts payable manager as of Nov. 30. In this role, she will continue to handle the organization’s domestic accounting and accounts payable activities, while also supporting the overseas accounting team.
Clarck previously served the Council as the accounting coordinator and holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Instituto Guaymuras Honduras.
“Her willingness to answer – and ask – all of the questions is legendary. Mevis’ meticulous attention to accounting regulations and all accounting details has been a significant factor in clean audits for the organization,” said Addis Tilahun, USGC director of finance.
Par, in her new role as manager of program funding, will help track and comply with regulations related to funding sources.
“Milla’s thoroughness and attention to details have served her and the organization well,” Tilahun said. “Her support of the accounting team covers the full range of accounting from domestic to international accounting.”
She previously served as the organization’s junior accounting assistant and holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Par steps into this role following Pooja Pokharel’s departure from the Council.
Please join the Council in congratulating Mevis and Milla!
