US Grains Council bids farewell to Castillo

US Grains Council bids farewell to Castillo

(Posted on 13/11/23)

Former U.S. Grains Council (USGC) Director of Global Programmes Alejandra Castillo was named the successor president and CEO of the North American Export Grain Association (NAEGA) last week. She is now working with the NAEGA staff to transition fully to president and CEO in 2024.

The U.S. Grains Council is an inclusive organization of corn, sorghum, barley producers and agribusiness organizations. It is a membership driven organization, which supports free and fair trade worldwide and actively pursues and supports alliances with organizations of like interest worldwide.

“On behalf of the entire Council, I would like to congratulate Alejandra on her new role at NAEGA,” said USGC President and CEO Ryan LeGrand. “Alejandra’s work ethic and passion for the Council’s mission will be greatly missed, but we are excited to continue working with her as a partner in our industry. This organization’s legacy around the world, and more specifically in India and the South Asia region, would not be what it is without her.”

Castillo brings 15 years of experience to her new role, with six of those being at the Council. She began her time at USGC as manager of global trade, before moving into the role of regional director for South Asia based in Singapore and then transitioning to India as director of the India office. Castillo played a major role in leading the legal compliances needed to open the Council’s newest office in New Delhi. She returned to the organization’s headquarters in early 2023 to finish out her time at the Council as director of global programs.

“As NAEGA works with those who feed the world to advocate for and support international trade of grain, we are confident Alejandra is a forward-looking and strategic leader who will guide NAEGA into the future,” said John Griffith, NAEGA chairman of the board, in an announcement from the organization last week.

The Council is wishing Alejandra the best of luck in her new endeavours at NAEGA.
