USA: Former US Secretary of Agriculture to join Hain Celestial's board
Melville, NY-based natural, specialty and snack food company The Hain Celestial Group has announced that former US Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman will join the company's board on 1 July 2002.
Irwin Simon, chairman, president and CEO, said: "Glickman has an outstanding and accomplished record of public service, both as Secretary of Agriculture during the Clinton administration and as a nine-term Congressman in the US House of Representatives where he represented Kansas' 4th Congressional District.
"We look forward to Dan bringing his perspectives, insights and knowledge to the Hain Celestial board."
Secretary Glickman will become the Director of the Institute of Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University on 1 August. Currently, he is a partner in the public law and policy practice group of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, LLP, and on 1 July he will leave the partnership to become a consultant and advisor to the law firm.
From March 1995 until January 2001, Glickman served as the Secretary of Agriculture. Under his leadership, the department modernized food safety regulations, forged international trade agreements to expand US markets, and focused the department on improving the nation's diet and nutrition.
Before his appointment as Secretary of Agriculture, he served for 18 years in the US House of Representatives, where he was a member of the House Agriculture Committee, including six years as chairman of the subcommittee that had jurisdiction over most federal farm policy issues.
