MOORHEAD, Minn. -- Lisa Borgen, whose career trajectory has taken her from the courtroom bench to private legal practice, now is switching to the corporate executive suite as American Crystal Sugar's next vice president for administration.

Borgen, who was named to the position Monday, will assume the post June 16. She will oversee human resources, public relations and information technology.

Borgen and her husband, Brad, once farmed north of Moorhead and grew sugar beets. They were shareholders at American Crystal, but sold the shares after they left farming about a dozen years ago, she said.

Borgen joined the Vogel Law Firm last November. Before that, she served seven years as district judge here for the 7th Judicial District of Minnesota. She had been Clay County attorney for seven years before being named to the bench by former Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
