Don’t hold it against him, but Shane is a former sports journalist. He’s taken those skills to new heights at AMS, working to grow brand awareness for Specialty Soya and Grains Alliance (SSGA). He manages the U.S. Identity Preserved assurance plan and brand mark program, along with SSGA University and other SSGA projects. Prior to joining AMS, Shane spent more than 25 years in journalism, working as a sports reporter and editor for multiple publications. He has won several writing awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, The Associated Press, the Minnesota Newspaper Association and the National Agri-Marketing Association.
Fun Shane fact: Shane covered Minnesota State University, Mankato men’s hockey for 20 years where he developed the persona Puckato. Even after leaving the Division I hockey beat, he is still called upon for his insight into the Mavericks hockey program.
