President & CEO, USAPEEC
Out of its home office in Stone Mountain, Ga., USAPEEC's reach is far ranging. Through its network of international offices and consultants in key markets around the globe, USAPEEC keeps current on issues that have a direct impact on U.S. poultry and egg exports. Although USAPEEC's mission is to promote exports of U.S. poultry and eggs around the world, the Council has evolved into an association that is an advocate for the industry on trade policy issues. Because of its status as a not-for-profit entity, USAPEEC does not lobby, but the organization can and does act as an intermediary with USDA, in Washington and at embassies and Agricultural Trade Offices around the world. USAPEEC also has good working relationships with other industry trade associations, such as the National Chicken Council, National Turkey Federation, American Egg Board, U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, and many more.
