“The University of Idaho gave me a place to learn and, as importantly, a place to grow up,” Elg said. “Whatever success I have achieved in my life is a result of the work ethic instilled in me by my parents and the academic and life lessons I received in my four years in Moscow, Idaho.”

Elg came to the University of Idaho from her family’s Culdesac farm when she was 17 years old. She hadn’t expected to attend college, but soon began studying accounting. She was recruited by Arthur Andersen’s Boise office as a senior and began her career.

After 10 years with Arthur Andersen, she joined the J.R. Simplot Company in 1989. She has been the company’s vice president and corporate controller, and is treasurer of the J.R. Simplot Foundation. She was promoted to senior vice president and CFO in 2002.

Annette is dedicated to community service, and has served in various board positions for Ballet Idaho, the Boise Art Museum and the Idaho Community Foundation. She is a current member of the University of Idaho College of Business and Economics advisory board. She was recognized for her contributions to the university and the state with the University of Idaho Alumni Association’s Silver and Gold Award in 2012.
