RealLeaders Ep 1 – Greg Stewart, Farm Credit Canada

Farm Credit Canada has been serving the financial needs of Canadian farmers since 1959. Since that time, the organization has evolved and adapted to meet the changing needs of the agricultural industry. Currently holding a portfolio of a staggering $22 billion and counting, FCC has shown tremendous growth and continues to serve the needs of producers and the agriculture industry. A portion of that growth has come as a result of the leadership provided by current President and CEO Greg Stewart.
