New CEO named for Seed Hawk

Saskatchewan-based seeding equipment manufacturer Seed Hawk Inc. has a new chief executive officer.

Nigel Jones, previously Seed Hawk’s vice president of operations and vice president of research & development, was appointed CEO effective October 24.

“I am optimistic of a bright future as we build on a strong seeding season that has resulted in a full order book for model year 2018 machines. I also look forward to further collaboration with our parent company, Väderstad, as we work more closely on product development and quality improvement, in our pursuit of becoming the leading air seeder brand in North America based on quality, innovation and customer focus,” said Jones in a statement issued by the company on Wednesday.

Jones replaces Birgitta Ewerlöf, who has moved on less than six months after being appointed president and CEO, in early May.

As RealAgriculture reported in June, Seed Hawk is undergoing a name change as of October 31, 2017, in addition to changing its colours to parent company Väderstad’s red and yellow.

Seed Hawk Inc. will be known as Vaderstad Industries (a, instead of ä), owned by Väderstad Group in Sweden. Seed Hawk will become the product name.
