The Stony Plain Seed Plant’s heart is its staff, from the Processors; Stacey Mikasko, Dale Schell, and Curtis Lepine. SPSeed’s Shippers; Chris Hubley, Wilbert Bareng, and Rejean Trombley work hard to ensure your product is made to the highest standard it can be.
Quality control from the moment it enters the yard to the time it leaves. Stony Plain Seed is fortunate to have a wonderful staff that focuses on customer successes.
Appointed as the CEO of Stony Plain Seed Cleaning Association Ltd. by the Board of Directors (BOD) in September 2019. That year SPSeed celebrated 65 years of service and being a member of the team is a great honor. Most recently, I was part of the company hired to bridge the exit of the former CEO. Our Group spent four months working alongside the existing team and the BOD helping them work through the transition. The result was a welcome opportunity to join SPSeed. The chance to return to my rural roots and bring 20 years of management experience to a great organization is an exciting challenge. Understanding that we are part of the world’s food production is what guides us. The longstanding commitment to our members, understanding our clients, and recognizing that the source of what people consume matters have been the foundation of this business and remain as important as ever. I look forward to continuing to be a contributing member of the community and building strong and lasting business relationships.
I have been working for Stony Plain Seed for seven years. I started as a processor back in 2013, and I worked my way up to head processor then to the assistant manager by my 3rd year. I became Plant Manager in 2018. I have been around agriculture for most of my life, grew up on a farm just outside of Stony Plain. I was part of the local 4-H till I was 21. Still help on the family farm. Stony Plain Seed has given high-quality service for the past 67 years, and I look forward to continuing that service into the future.
A recent BBA graduate with ten plus years of experience in CRM, business relationship management, events, and planning for-profit and non-profit organizations. Serving in various roles that required effective problem solving, strategic decision making, and leadership. I look forward to the continued relationship with Stony Plain Seed Cleaning’s Board of Directors and its members, focusing on customer success.
