WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The National Swine Registry (NSR) Executive Committee announced today, NSR CEO Dr. Clint Schwab, has accepted another position within the industry.
NSR Executive Committee Chairman Jim Grimm recognizes Schwab’s contribution not only to NSR, but the purebred swine industry as a whole.
“Clint is very talented and highly respected throughout the world in the field of genetics,” Grimm says. “But his greatest talent is his ability to communicate with people and create a team atmosphere among any group he works with. Clint has been a tremendous asset to NSR, and will be greatly missed.”
Schwab joined NSR in 2008 as the Director of Genetic and Technical Services, where he played a key role in the development of the STAGES™ pedigree and performance program. Schwab has worked extensively to evaluate and promote U.S. purebred swine genetics, working with commercial breeders in the U.S., China, Vietnam, Korea and the Philippines through America’s Best Genetics (ABG).
Schwab stepped into the role of Interim CEO for NSR in July 2011, and was later selected by the board to serve as CEO for the association.
“It has been a privilege to serve the members of the purebred swine industry over the past four years,” Schwab says. “The relationships I have formed during my time with NSR are invaluable, and I hope to continue building those relationships in the next phase of my career.”
The Executive Committee and NSR staff would like to thank Clint for his vision, leadership and contributions to NSR, and wish Clint and his wife, Sarah, success in all their future endeavors.
