JBS USA Corporate Headquarters

Upholding Ethics and Compliance

In April 2018, JBS USA announced the appointment of Lance Kotschwar to the role of Head of Ethics and Compliance for the company’s operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Based in Greeley, CO, Kotschwar oversees the company’s global compliance policies and programs, including the Code of Ethics and Conduct, Ethics Line, global anti-corruption policies, antitrust and competition law, trade compliance and conflict of interest policies, ensuring that JBS USA and Pilgrim’s operations around the world implement and maintain the highest ethical standards. An experienced regulatory and compliance professional, Kotschwar spent nearly a decade in the agriculture industry implementing and managing compliance programs and regulatory issues, on top of his nearly two decades of Federal legislative and regulatory experience with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and both bodies of Congress. In his new role, Kotschwar will report directly to the JBS USA President and CEO and work closely with the JBS USA Independent Advisory Board, which supports executive leadership on matters related to corporate governance, government and regulatory affairs, commodity risk management and marketing.
