The Canada Grains Council (CGC) is announcing new board leadership.
Pierre Petelle will take the place as chair, and Greg Cherewyk as vice-chair of its board of directors.
Petelle brings expertise in strategic direction and collaboration, as president and CEO of CropLife Canada.
Joining the CGC as vice-chair, Cherewyk has over two decades of experience at Pulse Canada, including in his current role as president. With a wealth of expertise in market development, trade policy and transportation, the CGC says Cherewyk is well-equipped to help advance Canada’s grain industry.
Cherewyk says the pulse industry is fully committed to leveraging the power of partnerships, and the forum that the CGC provides to advance the common grains sector interests is unparalleled.
“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. It’s a privilege for me to be part of that constructive process to identify common ground and to find opportunities to reach consensus,” he explains.
The CGC extends its gratitude to outgoing chair Rick White for his service and commitment to Canada’s grain sector.
