Mississippi Lime Co. (MLC) announced that Ryan Seelke is the company’s new director of safety. His focus will be on proactive risk-based safety practices, leadership, and training.
Prior to joining MLC, Ryan worked at Doe Run as a leader in its safety department. He also owned and led a private legal practice specializing in mine safety law and consulting before that assignment. His focus has been on creating risk-based safety cultures and programs in organizations.
“Safety is critically important. I hold safety as a value and chose to do this over practicing law. In this position, I have the opportunity to ensure that employees work safely and go home safely to their families,” Seelke said.
Seelke has an MBA from St. Louis University, a law degree from Washington University, and an economics degree from the University of Central Missouri. He is also pursuing a master’s in occupational safety management from the University of Central Missouri.
