The National Corn Growers Association welcomes Sarah McKay, who joins the organization this week as manager of market development in the St. Louis office. McKay brings an excellent combination of experience in public policy and food industry supply chain management to the team. In this new position, she will provide key support to NCGA’s animal agriculture, industrial use and new use efforts as a direct report to the director of market development.
“Sarah’s notable educational history, along with her work experience in the food industry and policy, have provided her with a skillset which will be uniquely advantageous in her new role” said Chief Strategy Officer and Vice President of Market Development Amie Gianino. “We look forward to seeing how her perspective and understanding of our industry partners’ issues will help progress our work in these crucial areas.”

Previously, she interned with both Senator Mark Warner and former Representative Eric Cantor. She earned a master’s degree in agricultural and applied economic management from Virginia Tech and bachelor’s degrees in both animal and poultry sciences, and agricultural applied economics with an emphasis in international trade and development from the same institution.
