AGRI-TREND Business Management Welcomes New Business-Coach, Don Saelhof to our Network!
Don was raised in the Simpson, Saskatchewan community and has lived and worked during his career in Saskatoon, Melfort, Regina, Winnipeg and Delta, B.C. He is cultured in the agricultural industry being the product of farming parents, having graduated from the College of Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan and having worked the majority of his career in agriculture. Much of his early career work was focused on the introduction of innovation in technology and business processes in food production agriculture. Since 2006 his business focus has been on the development of bio-energy and carbon clean energy opportunities for Canada and agriculture.
As a results oriented business manager, marketer and Agrologist, his career successes have been in crop production management, precision agriculture, product marketing, business planning and execution, organizational management and environmental stewardship. He has extensive entrepreneurial experience as a marketer of products and businesses that are emerging or require a new approach. Through his early years of employment Don worked in marketing and organizational management positions with Federated Cooperatives, the Royal Bank, Monsanto and JR International. Since 1991 he has provided business and agronomic consultancy services to farmers, insurance companies, government and Regina area companies involved in the agricultural, environmental and energy sectors. These experiences have taken him over all of North America, and provided priceless opportunities to grow as a person through his work with successful people from many countries and professions.
Through his work Don has collaborated with AGRI-TREND® people for many years and in his words "considers it a true privilege to be part of the AGRI-TREND team". As it always has been, his focus will be delivering value to his clients and having some fun along the way as we work to improve the business competitiveness of farmers and the rest of the agriculture industry.
Don and Connie will continue to live in and work out of Canada's Greatest City, Regina, Saskatchewan.
