CGB Enterprises, Inc. announces Ellie Murphy as its first appointed Director of Sustainability and Food Safety.

Murphy will lead the company’s sustainability program, including related objectives, goals and strategies, for organization-wide efforts across its multiple business units in the agriculture and transportation space.

“This new role is an important milestone for CGB, as we seek to enhance our sustainability efforts," says Kevin Adams, president & CEO, CGB.

"Creating this position clearly demonstrates our commitment to this objective. Ellie’s focus will include building out CGB’s first tactical sustainability plan while prioritizing the ESG goals of upstream customers,”

For Murphy's part, she is interested in understanding how the company might become more competitive by creatively introducing elements of advanced operational efficiency to its facilities and harnessing those benefits at scale.

“Our ultimate objective is to shift the culture from ‘doing things differently’ to ‘doing different things,'" she says.

"This will provide the most value to our stakeholders, employees, farmer-producers, and communities in which we operate.”

Murphy has held numerous roles of increasing responsibility within agribusiness, regulatory compliance, and sustainability. Most recently, she worked for Marathon Petroleum Corp., where she participated in and led various sustainability efforts across the Logistics and Storage component.

Murphy graduated from Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering and later earned a master’s degree in urban sustainability and resilience from Xavier University. She is currently a candidate in Ohio State’s Master’s of Applied Economics program.
