Jace Hefner has joined the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) in its Washington, D.C., headquarters as the new manager of global trade.

In this role, Hefner will provide trade servicing expertise to Council members and customers, further develop export markets for U.S. feed grains and strengthen the relationship between USGC and traders around the world.
