Alexis Taylor grew up on her family’s farm in Iowa and is a graduate of Iowa State University and an Army Veteran. She is currently the Director of the Oregon Department of Agriculture. Since leaving Iowa, she has also held positions focused on agriculture with members of Congress including Iowa Congressman Leonard Boswell, and in USDA’s Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services to open markets and promote exports.
The following is a statement from the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) President Lance Lillibridge:
“ICGA congratulates Alexis on her nomination to serve as the Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Affairs. We are thrilled to see an Iowa native nominated who understands the importance of trade policy and promoting agriculture, corn, and biofuels in a global market. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Alexis in her new role.”
ICGA will encourage the U.S. Senate to confirm Taylor in a timely manner in her new role.
