The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) recently appointed Greg Hibner to represent the agribusiness sector on their Board of Directors.

Hibner is the president of J.D Heiskell & Company’s Hawkeye Gold division. He has a 30-year background in commodity processing, international trading and ethanol.

“We are pleased that Greg has accepted this leadership role within the Council,” USGC Chairman Alan Tiemann said. “He has both experience with membership organizations and a wealth of expertise in farming, commodity trading and marketing to help him provide us with valuable insights during his tenure on the board.”

In addition to Hibner’s extensive career, he grows corn, sorghum, soybeans, wheat and irrigated cotton in Illinois, Iowa and Arkansas.

“In my career, I’ve marketed corn gluten feed to Europe, corn gluten meal to South America and Southeast Asia and DDGS globally,” Hibner said. “International trade will always include both opportunities and obstacles, disputes and challenges. As a longtime member of the council and a new board member, I am enthusiastic about addressing all of these through pursuit of the organization’s mission to develop markets, enable trade and improve lives.”

Hibner will replace Steve Brody and will serve on the USGC Board until July 2017.

“Greg’s appointment to our board will be invaluable towards helping us anticipate and meet the agribusiness sector’s needs,” Tiemann said. “His deep experience with the council and other agriculture industry organizations will offer us a unique perspective on challenges and opportunities our members face in the international marketplace.”
