The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today revealed it recently awarded a $61 million contract to Chemonics International, Inc., to boost the productivity and product quality of the Nigerian agriculture sector.

Chemonics is led by Richard Dreiman, a Harvard University and UC Berkley educated CEO who worked as a privately contracted advisor to USAID/Zaire before coming to the company in 1992. Indeed, the Chemonics executive team is composed of many former USAID officials and independent contractors, including ex-USAID staffers and current Chemonics Senior VPs James Griffin, Stephen Pelliccia, Chris Scott, and Douglas L. Tinsler.
