Mississauga, ON – We are pleased to announce that Mike Pastir has accepted the position of Fertilizer Product Line Manager for Agrico effective September 26, 2016. Fertilizer Product Line Manager is a newly created role that is the product of a recent restructuring of Agrico’s supply and distribution functions to improve operational performance and better serve our customers.
Mike’s primary responsibilities will include product marketing and supply coordination in Eastern Canada and United States. He will report to Agrico General Manager, Bill Wilford. Mike brings to this role a great understanding of our ag-retail customers, based on his past experience with NutriAg Ltd, and, more recently, in his position as Agrico Account Manager for the past 5 years.
