Our client is a multi billion-dollar Canadian company with an international presence. A guiding principle of their company is to do profitable business with a social purpose. They are now entering the Agriculture / Agri Food sector and creating products and services to connect the value chain, and help Canada build the most trusted food system in the world.
Ag Network recruitment firm has been retained to help identify candidates for this Vice President Agriculture role, (as well as for other DIRECTOR level positions).
As their new Vice President Agriculture, you can lead this new bold endeavor and create the Agriculture division of the company. This new Agriculture division will focus on providing technology products and services to the Agriculture / Agri Food sector.
Our client has the technology to support, enable and unite players all along the value chain from the farm to the fork. You will help develop and articulate the vision for the new Agriculture division; and you will hire, build and lead the high-performance team that will execute the plan.
This multi billion-dollar company already has an amazing list of products, services, and talented people. Plus, you will have the resources needed to acquire the additional technology and people required to establish the division. You will use your knowledge of the Agriculture and Agri-Food value chain, to see where existing resources can be utilized within AG. When you see gaps, (i.e. business opportunities), between what you already have to offer and what the industry needs, you will work in collaboration with your team to create, or acquire, new products or services that fill the need.
We are looking for an experienced senior level executive who can articulate a vision, create a strategy and build a team. A proven track record at the executive level within Agriculture or Agri Food is required. Experience managing a large team with a collaborative work environment is essential. We are looking for a “thought leader” and a “builder” to drive this complex initiative and create a large new division of the company. Experience running a start up would be an asset but is not required. Mergers and acquisitions experience would be an asset but is not required.
There is only one Vice President Agriculture position available, but there are also openings on the team at the Director level. Candidates who are strong, but do not win the competition for the Vice President job may be considered for Director Level positions.
