Iowa Ethanol Exec Moves On


hawkeye goldMarty Lyons, Chief Commercial Officer with Hawkeye Gold, LLC has resigned from the Iowa ethanol company to pursue other interests. Lyons worked for Hawkeye Gold since 2007, helping to create and expand marketing opportunities for one of the nation’s largest ethanol producers. Previously, Lyons was the Senior Vice-President, Ethanol, Sweetners, and Starches at Archer Daniels Midland in Decatur, Illinois.

“It was a pleasure to work with the team at Hawkeye Gold and I wish them all the best in the future,” said Lyons. “I will miss my hard working colleagues but am excited about the prospect to pursue other opportunities and continue my involvement in the renewable fuels industry. Clearly, plants need more control of their business as they manage their inputs in these volatile markets. I am focused on looking for ways to bring that necessary control back to the plants.”

Lyons and his family will be relocating to the St. Louis area while looking to pursue other opportunities. Lyons has spent more than 30 years in the grain and renewable fuels industries, working to improve efficiencies and business opportunities through more streamlined and integrated business activities.
