Grégoire Berthe, Céréales Vallée CEO, receives the IWGSC Outstanding Leadership Award

Bethesda, Maryland, U.S. – 16 November 2015

Grégoire Berthe receives the IWGSC Outstanding Leadership Award
Grégoire Berthe was awarded on 16 November an IWGSC Outstanding Leadership Award in recognition of his continuous support to the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) over the last 10 years. He received his award at the International Wheat Innovation Workshop in Clermont-Ferrand (France), organized by the BreedWheat project.

Grégoire Berthe is CEO of Céréales Vallée, a “Competitiveness Cluster” bringing together more than 500 actors from the French cereal sector involved in research, industry, services and training. Based in the Auvergne region of France, the aim of the cluster is to develop innovations to optimize cereal cultivation for both food and non-food applications.

Since the inception of the IWGSC in 2005, Berthe has tirelessly supported the efforts of the Consortium by helping disseminate information about the projects in the wheat community. As a result of his support, IWGSC Executive Director Kellye Eversole has been regularly invited to numerous conferences and asked to present the IWGSC work before the International Seed Federation (ISF) and the European Seed Association (ESA) for example, resulting in increased support of the broader breeding community.

For the past few years, Berthe has given presentations on behalf of the IWGSC at the ISF meetings. Grégoire Berthe has also been instrumental in fostering support for funding IWGSC projects in France through the labeling of projects by Céréales Vallée as well as lobbying to governmental funding agencies.

At the ceremony, Kellye Eversole said: “many of the significant achievements the consortium has had over the past ten years would not have been possible without visionary individuals like Grégoire Berthe. I feel very fortunate to have had a chance to work with Grégoire as he is the epitome of dedication and devotion to ensuring a prosperous future for wheat farmers.”

Prior to leading Céréales Vallée, Grégoire Berthe held various positions in Limagrain Cooperative Group, among which Director of Research & Development World for field seeds and Chief Executive Officer of seed subsidiaries in Europe and North America. He subsequently headed Limagrain scientific and regulatory affairs at the Group level. Gregoire is currently involved in various French, European and World seed trade associations, as board member or expert.

About the IWGSC

The IWGSC, with more than 1,100 members in 55 countries, is an international, collaborative consortium, established in 2005 by a group of wheat growers, plant scientists, and public and private breeders. The goal of the IWGSC is to make a high quality genome sequence of bread wheat publicly available, in order to lay a foundation for basic research that will enable breeders to develop improved varieties.
