MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, US — Ceres Global Ag Corp. has named Jennifer Henderson vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, effective Feb. 13. She replaces Glen Goldman, who stepped down from the position on Dec. 31, 2022, and had been representing the corporation on a consultative basis since his departure.

Henderson brings more than 20 years of global legal experience, along with experience in commercial leadership, product safety, and regulatory affairs in the food, feed, and biotechnology segments. Henderson joins Ceres Global Ag Corp. from Believer Meats, where she was senior vice president, chief administrative officer, and general counsel and oversaw the legal, human resources, regulatory affairs, government relations and food safety functions.

Prior to joining Believer Meats, Henderson held various leadership roles at Cargill within their global leadership teams, including managing director of Cargill’s Animal Nutrition business in Western Canada, and business unit lead counsel roles with Cargill’s Valued Added Meats business and Cargill’s Global Animal Nutrition business. Ceres said Henderson also brings valuable experience in global agriculture supply chain solutions. 

“We thank Glen for his contributions to Ceres over the last four years and wish him continued success in his future endeavors,” said Carlos Paz, chief executive officer of Ceres. “We are also pleased to welcome Jennifer to the team. Her extensive legal background coupled with her global leadership experience in transportation and logistics, supply chain solutions, and futures and commodities trading will strengthen our management team and support the continued growth of the corporation.”
