The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) has promoted Katy Wyatt to manager of global strategies, effective on Oct. 30, to replace Anne Zaczek, who departed the organization at the end of the month.  

In her new role, Wyatt will assist in managing global strategies programs, including the coordination of the Council's Unified Export Strategy and the organization's Food for Progress program in Tanzania. Wyatt will also provide support to the USGC global programs, trade policy and innovation/sustainability teams. 

“We are excited to have Katy in this new role,” said Kurt Shultz, USGC senior director of global strategies. “Her educational background and prior professional experience in Africa add to her interest and passion for the Council’s work.” 

Wyatt joined the Council in July 2017 as global strategies coordinator, a role that allowed her to support the global strategies and trade policy departments, organize staff and member travel, prepare arrangements for visiting teams and faciliate program planning, correspondence, reports, information management and contracting.

Prior to the Council, Wyatt gained experience working on the MasterCard Foundation’s 2017 Young Africa Works Summit and on publicizing success stories for the Canadian International Development Agency’s program in Ethiopia. Wyatt also previously worked as a teaching assistant and administrative support officer with Dalhousie University in Canada. 

Wyatt attended Dalhousie University and earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and international development and a master’s degree in economics. 

Please join the Council in congratulating Katy on her new role!
