LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Former Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman has been named to the board of directors of Conklin Company, Inc., a manufacturer and direct-sales firm owned by Falls City businessman Charles Herbster.

The company announced Friday that Heineman, who left office last month, will travel the country in his role for various company events.

Herbster is a Republican activist who flirted with a run for Nebraska governor last year, as Heineman was preparing to step down. He opted not to run, and instead bankrolled the gubernatorial campaign of Republican state Sen. Beau McCoy, of Omaha.

The Conklin Company offers has six major divisions: agronomics, animal products, building products, health and home products and vehicle products. Its vice president is Carlos Castillo, who led the Nebraska Department of Administrative Services under Heineman.
