"We have several existing experts with specialties in land and natural resources and food and livestock production, and we have been getting many requests in these areas over the past couple of years, so we decided to formalize these areas as separate sections within our group," says Wayne Lee, CEO of Lee Enterprises. "The promotion of these three experts rounds out our executive leadership team of twelve and gives us the ability to deploy our chemical, engineering, and economic experts to all facets of the bioeconomy in a timely manner."
Lee Enterprises Consulting's COO, Dr. Terry Mazanec agrees. "While we will likely add a few additional experts within these two new groups, our current depth and breadth certainly allow us to handle virtually any type of project within the bioeconomy and these new areas, so this really was a natural progression for us," says Mazanec.
