Senior Channel Manager, Telus Agriculture
Chris grew up on a mixed farm just northwest of Winnipeg, Manitoba which speaks to his love for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Winnipeg Jets. His career in agriculture began at CIBA (now Syngenta) as a territory manager. He then moved into the entrepreneurial space by joining FarmLink Marketing Solutions in 2005. In 2014, FarmLink acquired Farm At Hand, a digital farm record-keeping solution – here, Chris began his journey in the world of data and digitization in agriculture. In 2019, TELUS acquired Farm At Hand as part of the creation of TELUS Agriculture. Chris currently holds the role of Senior Channel Manager, Agriculture at TELUS.
Chris has a Bachelor of Science and Arts from the University of Manitoba and is a member of Canadian Association of Farm Advisors (as well as a former national chair.) He currently resides in Melfort, Saskatchewan with his family, where he enjoys hockey, golf and a little acting and singing.
