Canada Grains Council names new board leadership
July 11, 2023 By Bakers Journal
Ottawa – The Canada Grains Council has named Pierre Petelle as chair and Greg Cherewyk as vice-chair of its board of directors.
In his position as president and CEO of CropLife Canada, Petelle leads the association’s advocacy efforts for regulatory frameworks that enable innovative agricultural solutions to come to market in Canada.
“I’m honoured to be part of an organization that represents the entire grains value chain and is a model for industry collaboration and coordination,” Petelle said in a news release. “The CGC represents a hugely important sector and plays a critical role in advancing our collective efforts on sustainability, food security and economic growth.”
Cherewyk has over two-decades of experience at Pulse Canada, including his role as president, and expertise in market development, trade policy and transportation.
“From issues that impact our industry at home to those that affect our ability to access priority markets around the world, we get further faster when we find ways to work together,” Cherewyk said. “It’s a privilege for me to be part of that constructive process to identify common ground and to find opportunities to reach consensus.”
CGC extended its gratitude to outgoing chair Rick White for his service and commitment to Canada’s grain sector.
