Carley Esser, U.S. Grains Council (USGC) global strategies coordinator, departed the Council on Sept. 28 to join the staff of U.S. Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler from Missouri.
“Carley certainly had a tremendous impact on the global strategies team during her time at the Council,” said Kurt Shultz, USGC senior director of global strategies. “I know we all will miss her skills and calm leadership.”
Esser joined the Council in January as the global strategies coordinator. In this role, she supported the global strategies and trade policy/biotechnology teams, organized staff and member arrangements and facilitated program planning, correspondence reports, information management and contracting.
The Council’s leadership thanks Carley for her service to the organization. Please join the Council in wishing her farewell!
