The IGP Institute announces the recent appointment of Shawn Thiele as the flour milling and grain processing curriculum manager at Kansas State University. 
In this role, Mr Thiele develops and teaches the core milling and processing courses at the IGP Institute. In addition, he oversees the creation and presentation of workshops, on-site courses, distance education courses and other technical outreach programs to enhance the market promotion, consumption and utilisation of US cereal grains, oilseeds and their value-added products for the global grain and feed industry.
“I hope to strengthen and expand the IGP Institute’s milling and processing courses through new and innovative teaching materials to provoke learning for participants and vest interest from the industry to energise the consumption of US grains worldwide,” Mr Thiele says.
Before stepping into this position, Mr Thiele was the operations manager at the KSU Hal Ross Flour Mill for more than three years. Prior to that, he worked in the oat and corn milling business units for eight years at Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Grain Science and Industry Department Head and IGP Institute Director Gordon Smith says he is excited about leveraging Mr Thiele’s skills in his new role.
