October 2, 2020: For Immediate release
AGvisorPRO is pleased to announce Norm Janssen will be joining their team as Business Development Officer. Norm will work with the AGvisorPRO leadership team to explore business opportunities both domestically and internationally.
For the last 17 years, Janssen has worked as the Investment Attraction Manager with Alberta Agriculture connecting investors with entrepreneurs bringing food and value-added businesses to the province from across Canada, the EU, and the Middle East.
“Norm brings with him global connections and vast experience in the agri-business space”, says CEO, Robert Saik, “We are excited to have Norm on the AGvisorPRO Team. As our platform expands, we are seeing opportunities to create even more connections between farmers, independent advisers, industry partners, researchers, government officials, and the public. Norm will help us expand into traditional agriculture as well as adjacent spaces such as the food sector.”
“It’s exciting to be a part of a vibrant, energetic team who are working to help agriculture communicate in a new way.” explains Janssen, “When I saw what AGvisorPRO could do to connect across all sectors of the value chain I wanted to be a part of that vision. Rob has assembled an amazing team that can help agriculture communicate in a COVID and post-COVID world. There’s so much we can do by putting experts on the farm without having to be on the farm; the possibilities are endless!”
Much of Norm’s work will be to expand the AGvisorPRO Tech Direct roster of industry partners who can be accessed for free on the platform. He will also be supporting the addition of independent experts including connections within the government and research communities.
