The Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP) board of directors has announced a new general manager.
Brenna Mahoney will join Manitoba’s main general farm organization effective June 14, 2021.
In a news release issued May 6, KAP notes Mahoney has experience with national coalitions and partnerships focused on advancing grain nutrition, healthy farm practices, market access, public trust, and sustainability.
“I am very pleased to welcome Brenna to our organization,” says Bill Campbell, president of KAP. “She brings with her a wealth of agricultural and communications experience that will build on the strong foundation we have at KAP.”
Before joining KAP, Mahoney was director of communications and stakeholder relations for Cereals Canada. She was also a steering committee member for the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Crops (CRSC) and supported the development of CRSC’s code of practice.
Mahoney is also a board member for the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame and Farmers Abroad Canada. She was formerly the chair of the Healthy Grains Institute.
“I am excited to work for Manitoba’s agricultural producers,” says Mahoney. “Agriculture is a key economic driver and there are many opportunities for sustained growth through collaboration across the sector.”
She replaces Patty Rosher, who was appointed assistant chief commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission by Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau in December 2020.
