Lyndsey Erb, U.S. Grains Council (USGC) director of industry relations, will depart the Council in mid-June to pursue other career opportunities.
“Lyndsey, over the course of nine years, has done an excellent job for the Council,” said Ryan LeGrand, USGC president and chief executive officer. “From solidifying our membership base to taking on anti-dumping and countervailing duties cases around the world, Lyndsey’s impact on our work here at the Council will be with us for a long time.”
Erb joined the Council in May 2011 as the membership coordinator, later serving as the manager of membership outreach and development before assuming her current role in 2013. As director of industry relations, Erb directed the membership team and was responsible for member servicing, retention, education and growth.
“Lyndsey has transformed the industry relations department and has added tremendous value to every department within the Council and significant value to our membership as a whole,” said Kim Atkins, USGC vice president and chief operating officer. “We thank Lyndsey for her many contributions to the Council and wish her the best going forward.”
The Council’s leadership thanks Erb for her service. Please join the Council in wishing her farewell!
