Firdaus Hussain

Regional Ethanol consultant for Southeast Asia

Firdaus Hussain serves as a consultant for the U.S. Grains Council, a non-profit organization that promotes the use of U.S. barley, corn, sorghum and related products worldwide. In this capacity, Hussain will lead ethanol programs and promotional efforts throughout the region.

Hussain’s position is part of the Council’s expanded engagement in U.S. ethanol export market development in Southeast Asia – a priority, given the potential for exports to the region and the resulting new corn grind those exports could generate.

Prior to joining the Council, Hussain served Malaysia’s national oil company, PETRONAS, as a gasoline trader. In this capacity, Hussain managed marketing, trading and sourcing of gasoline.
