Stephen R Doyle, vice president at King Milling Company in Lowell, Michigan, was unanimously elected 2016-2017 vice president of the International Association of Operative Millers (IAOM) at the Association’s 120th Annual Conference & Expo on April 7, in Columbus, Ohio.

As vice president, Mr Doyle will be responsible for overseeing preparations for the Association’s 2017 conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is in line to serve as the Association’s president from 2017-2018. Mr Doyle has been an active member of IAOM since 1987.

While serving as IAOM vice president, he will also be president of the International Milling Education Foundation (IMEF), a philanthropic partner of IAOM that funds a variety of educational programs related to the grain milling industry.

Mr Doyle is a native of Lowell, Michigan. He earned a bachelor’s degree in milling science at Kansas State University, in Manhattan, Kansas.
