AGRI-TREND® Marketing is pleased to welcome Ryan Denis as AGRI-TREND® Market-Coach® based in Tofield, AB to our growing network
I was raised on the family farm in Domremy, SK, where we crop 5000+ acres of canola, wheat, oats and peas. I spent 3 years at the U of S working towards a degree in Ag Business. I am currently taking classes with Olds College and will be completing my Rural Finance and Entrepreneurship Certificate in May 2015. Even though we moved to Alberta from Saskatchewan in 2007, I continue to be involved in the family farm especially on the business side of things. I spent 2 years buying grain with Viterraand spent the last 3.5 years working as a grain marketing specialist with Cargill. With my past careers, I've learned the importance of risk management and have seen first hand the benefits of a well executed grain marketing plan. I learned about this role with AGRI-TREND through a recruiting specialist. I will do well as a Market-Coach because of the passion I have for grain marketing and risk management, it is what I enjoy doing. As a Market-Coach, I will have the ability to work with AGRI-TREND's vast group of experts which will allow for granular, farm specific recommendations, the unbiased approach will also be important for my growers. AGRI-TREND's network will be available for support and guidance every step of the way, and that is what gives me confidence. The key difference is the team approach, it is important to have teammates to bounce risk management ideas off of each other. It also allows for multiple sets of eyes watching for market cues. I will continue to reside just outside of Tofield, AB and plan on servicing East Central Alberta.
