The Canola Council of Canada (CCC) has begun the process of searching for the next president and CEO of the organization, now that current president Jim Everson has announced he is leaving. Everson will continue in the role until a new president and CEO is in place.
The executive committee of the CCC board has selected HR Resolve to lead the recruitment effort, which is now underway. More details on this leadership opportunity can be found on the CCC website.
“Value chain leadership and cooperation has been central to the success of the Canadian canola industry,” says Jennifer Marchand, CCC board chair. “The new president and CEO will harness this cooperative approach to continue to build new opportunities and growth for the sector.”
Everson joined the CCC as president in April 2017, and also previously served as vice president, government relations with the CCC from 2008 to 2015. Everson served as executive director of Soy Canada from 2015 until 2017.
“It has been a privilege to hold this leadership role and work with the membership and board of the Canola Council to support a dynamic, growth-oriented global industry,” says Everson.
