Kim McConnell recognized with Inspiring Business Leader Award

It’s been 40 years since Kim McConnell started his first agri-business, Fieldstone Marketing. McConnell built that company into what eventually became AdFarm, one of North America’s largest agricultural marketing companies.

McConnell has been a constant presence in moving the Canadian agri-food industry forward even after moving away from his role as CEO as AdFarm, and was instrumental in the establishment of the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity.

A past recipient of the “Agri-Marketer of the Year” and the Canadian Youth Business Foundation “Mentor of the Year,” a member of the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame, and a recipient of the Order of Canada, this week McConnell adds another award to his list of recognition.

The Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary and the Calgary Chamber of Commerce has named McConnell the 2024 recipient of the Inspiring Business Leader Award.

McConnell will receive the award on June 20th and become the 32nd recipient of the annual award handed out by the school at the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, with support from gala partner, Calgary Foundation. The recognition will take place at the new BMO Centre.
