The national association that represents Canadian agricultural retailers has hired a new executive director.
Mitch Rezansoff has taken on the lead post with the Canadian Association of Agri-Retailers following Delaney Ross Burtnack’s departure for the Manitoba Canola Growers Association last summer.
Rezansoff was most recently the Integrated Solutions Manager at Enns Brothers — a John Deere dealership in southern Manitoba. He previously worked as a territory manager for BASF.
“The retail sector is instrumental in transferring knowledge to farmers,” says Rezansoff, in a statement on Monday. “It’s important that, as an industry, we’re providing sound, reliable information to help them improve their businesses and the quality of life on the farm. Retailers play a significant role in advancing new ideas and innovation.
“It’s exciting to be a part of an industry that is evolving all the time. What do the next 10 years look like? I don’t know, but I’m looking forward to being a part of it.”
