“Doug’s vast experience with quality and manufacturing of food products makes him a valuable addition to our compliance team," says Lori Flugum, Business Operations and Supply Chain Director for Diamond V. "And his passion for people development, building high-performing teams, and serving customers makes him a great fit for our culture."
In the EHS Manager role, Scherbring will oversee environmental compliance and safety-focused initiatives for both Diamond V and Embria Health Sciences.
