Bill Roenigk, senior vice president of the National Chicken Council, will become a part-time consultant to NCC starting in June 2013, it was announced last week. Roenigk has served at NCC since 1974.
"After nearly 40 years of service to the National Chicken Council and the U.S. chicken industry, Bill's contributions are countless and his encyclopedic mind on the history and issues of importance to our industry is unchallenged," NCC President Mike Brown said in a message to NCC membership. "I thank Bill for his unmatched service and congratulate him on this announcement."
Brown noted the arrangement will allow Roenigk to "remain an important part of the team and we will all still benefit from his wisdom and wit – just not nearly as often."
Roenigk in his own message to NCC membership expressed his appreciation for the opportunity to work for the council and with an outstanding industry. He also expressed his appreciation to the council's executive leadership for accepting his request to continue with NCC on a consultancy basis. He added that he looks forward to helping NCC continue to achieve its mission.
