General Counsel
Producers Rice Mill Inc.
Stuttgart
Woodruff County native Lana Roth kept her focus rural after graduating from the University of Arkansas School of Law in 2011.
 
The Arkansas State University business graduate had a reason to pinpoint Stuttgart, the “Rice Capital of the World,” as her destination.
 
“My boyfriend then, husband now, was from Stuttgart and farms here. So I wanted work in this area, and a mutual connection put me in touch with Keith Glover, CEO of Producers Rice Mill, who was looking for an in-house lawyer.”
 
Roth took the job and soon became general counsel for the 850-employee company. She’s been a civic leader ever since, serving on the Planning & Zoning Commission and leading the Chamber of Commerce
in the town of 8,100. Roth and her husband, Clint, also manage a fifth-generation rice, soybean and corn farm. “I never thought ‘rice’ would be an integral part of my work and home life.”
 
Roth counts shepherding a 26-megawatt solar power project through the regulatory process as her top achievement at Producers. “It will be the largest private solar and storage facility in the state, and it was a multiyear process. We have the pieces in place, and we’re supposed to start construction this spring.”
