WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. — The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) promoted Candice Wilson to manager of ethanol trade policy.

Wilson joined the council in September 2017 as the graduate fellow in economics and ethanol. In this role, Wilson worked on a variety of projects ranging from ethanol research to analysis of global supply and demand for coarse grains and products.

In her new role, Wilson will take on the larger task of managing trade policy issues related to ethanol in addition to continued work on global economic analysis.

“Given the number of trade policy challenges we face in the world of ethanol, Candice will have her hands full,” said Mike Dwyer, USGC chief economist. “Her work with our staff and main ethanol partners will continue to address these challenges and pursue new markets for U.S. ethanol.”

Prior to joining the council, Wilson completed both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agricultural economics at Kansas State University. Additionally, she worked as an international intern with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) in Brussels, Belgium.
