Poultry Industry Council announces new executive director


Ashley Honsberger will be taking on the role of executive director for the Poultry Industry Council (PIC) effective December.

“Ashley’s experience and passion will be a great addition to our organization,” says Ed Verkley, chair of the board for PIC. “Her demonstrated ability to build relationships and develop programs with a broad range of stakeholders will support PIC’s vision to be the preferred provider of education extension services and knowledge transfer to support a strong, successful and sustainable poultry industry.”

Honsberger is no stranger to agriculture, having worked most recently at the Agri-food Management Institute (AMI) as executive director. Prior to that she was the project co-ordinator for the Agricultural Adaptation Council.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining the PIC team as I value their commitment to serving the poultry sector with the information and resources they need on an ongoing basis,” Honsberger says. “I look forward to continuing the work of bringing our stakeholders and members together to ensure the sector stays ahead of the curve by being proactive and remaining informed.”

Honsberger will officially join PIC December 2nd.
