SaskCanola names new executive director


A familiar name in central Saskatchewan is SaskCanola’s new executive director.

“We are eager to welcome Lisa Horn to the SaskCanola team,” says Doyle Wiebe, chair of the SaskCanola board of directors.

“Lisa is an experienced leader in the agriculture industry. Her breadth of knowledge will help advance the strategic direction of SaskCanola and the canola industry, while leading on the issues and priorities fundamental to our mandate,” he says.

Horn, who previously worked for Federated Co-operatives Limited, will take over the position immediately from interim executive director, Adele Buettner.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to join the SaskCanola team,” Horn says. “I look forward to working with SaskCanola’s remarkable staff and directors to share in the prosperous evolution of canola research, advocacy, and market development on behalf of Saskatchewan’s canola growers.”

Horn is no stranger to agriculture, having grown up on a mixed farm operation in west central Saskatchewan. She’s also has a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan.
