Ms. Hernandez-Longan has over 20 years of financial experience in working with both public and private corporations in financial planning and analysis, SEC reporting, international finance, corporate M&A, divestitures and joint ventures.

Prior to joining Wal-Mart, she spent nearly four years at Ford Motor Company, rising from Controller of Vehicle Procurement Operations to Chief Financial Officer of Ford of Brazil, where she had responsibility for finance, accounting and treasury and while there successfully restructured the existing business. This restructuring resulted in significant sustained fixed cost improvements, enhanced revenue, improved cash management and bottom-line profitability. Upon returning to North America, Ms. Hernandez-Longan was appointed Controller of Ford's Customer Service Division North American Operations.

Prior to Ford, she was with Eaton Corporation where she served as Chief Financial Officer and Worldwide Controller of the company's Automotive Controls Operations. Responsibilities included in depth strategic business analysis, monthly forecasting, strategic/annual profit plans and Information Technology. She helped sell the Vehicle Switch Division to Delphi in late 2000 and restructured Automotive Controls for improved profitability.

Most recently, and prior to joining NutraCea, Hernandez-Longan was a Partner with Tatum LLC in their Financial Executive Practice. There she served as Interim Chief Financial Officer of companies such as Wells Dairy, makers of Blue Bunny Brand ice cream and Terlato Wine Group, a luxury wine producer and distributor where she had responsibility for all accounting, financial planning and M&A/joint venture activity.

Brad Edson, President and Chief Executive Officer of NutraCea commented, "We are extremely pleased to have Olga join our management team.
