Gregory Beck
(Click on the picture to see the video of the acceptance speech)
(QuickTime is required)

Mr. Gregory Beck earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology at Purdue University in 1982, and his Master of Science in Agricultural Finance at Purdue in 1984. After graduating from Purdue, Greg's career began at Consolidated Grain and Barge (CGB) as a fleet dispatcher in Cincinnati . From his roots in marine transportation, new duties were learned in truck dispatch and bulk terminal operations. After that initial experience in basic transportation, he began to originate grain from producers, which led to trading commodities in various transportation modes. The knowledge gained there was then used to manage small facilities, which led to larger facilities, and eventually to the general management of two of the company's five regions. Throughout his career Greg co-chaired different committees within CGB focusing on grain origination and new contract concepts for the organization's customers. These committees formed the foundation for much of the way CGB originates grain from its customers today.

In July 2002 he assumed the role of Vice President of the Grain Division. As Vice President, Greg is responsible for all grain operations which include marketing and merchandising of all grains, specialty grains, facility and plant operations, grain origination and customer relationship management, facility acquisitions, as well as overall financial performance of that division. Greg and his family reside in Covington , Louisiana , and last year while searching for colleges, he and his daughter Jane toured the West Lafayette campus, perhaps bringing another Beck to “Old Purdue.”
