In addition to the upcoming office move, collocating with National Corn Growers Association's Washington staff, the U.S. Grains Council has brought on board two staff members whose talent and skills will be recognized assets as the Council enters the new year. Along with Andrew Conner, new USGC manager of global biotechnology who joined Council on Nov. 28, Jon Weiss and Wendie Cable have also recently started.
Mr. Jon Weiss began work at the Council on Nov. 30 filling the manager of domestic accounting position vacated by Joey Tatlonghari. Jon previously worked for U.S. Wheat Associates, which the Council anticipates will allow for an easy transition.
Finally, Ms. Wendie Cable joins the Council as the Executive Assistant for Thomas C. Dorr, USGC President and CEO, and Thomas N. Sleight, USGC Vice President of Operations and Membership. Replacing Michael Zorger who was promoted to manager of global strategies, Wendie comes to the Council with extensive experience as an Executive Assistant, most recently with KPMG, a global audit, tax and advisory services firm.
Please join us in welcoming Jon and Wendie to the Council team.
