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.

“This position is a key role for the Council’s outreach, both to our domestic membership and our international offices and customers,” said Kurt Shultz, USGC senior director of global strategies. “Jace will act as a trade ambassador and take charge of several of our marketing outreach efforts on behalf of the U.S. Grains Council.”

Before joining the Council, Hefner spent five years at Oracle Corporation, where he led political and diplomatic outreach.

Hefner holds a bachelor’s degree in international studies from Baylor University.

The USGC is an inclusive, membership driven organization of corn, sorghum, barley producers and agribusiness organizations.

It actively pursues and supports alliances with organizations of like interest worldwide.

The USGC is led by the board of directors on policy development and served by the CEO and staff in carrying out its mission.
