Rick Serie is the new general manager of Great Plains Ethanol, a 40 mmgy plant under construction near Chancellor, S.D. Serie comes from Luverne, Minn., where he was general manager of Agri-Energy. Both facilities are managed by Broin Management, and Serie remains a Broin employee, he said. "I plan to do as much local hiring as I can," he said. The plant will hire a staff of about 35 people, with six to eight of those skilled technical employees. He will bring some of the skilled technicians with him from Luverne, the rest will be hired from the surrounding area. Broin Management currently manages 11 ethanol plants in the U.S.
