Dale's strength centres on market development, discovery, and innovative positioning of new high quality products and services into the marketplace. With 32 years of experience, he consistently delivers knowledge-based solutions to clients and is always looking for reasons to colour outside the lines.
Dale is a graduate of the University of Guelph (1978) who earned his credibility in agriculture from the ground up as a feed sales territory manager, custom fertilizer application driver, farm supply centre general manager, and a crop consultant. From 1990 to 2006, Dale owned and operated Agri-Food Laboratories, and guided the company through phenomenal growth prior to selling the company to Agri-Food Knowledge Solutions.
As a leader in Ontario agriculture, Dale believes, "If you do things that are good for your industry, it will lead to things that are good for your business." True to those words Dale currently sits as Past-President and former Crop Section Chair on the Ontario Agribusiness Association (OABA); is involved with the Agriculture Research and Environment Committee; was appointed by the Minister of Agriculture and Minister of the Environment as Vice Chair to the Provincial Nutrient Management Advisory Committee (PNMAC); he is a member on the Ontario Drinking Water Stewardship Program Advisory Panel; and is past chair of the Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) Program.
