The Keystone Potato Producers Association board has a new general manager.
Susan Ainsworth is replacing Dan Sawatzky effective September 1, 2023.
Sawatzky will be working with Ainsworth over the next few months which will help with a smoother transition.
He says her past experience and exposure within the potato industry make her a perfect choice.
Ainsworth has worked in various roles within the potato industry in Manitoba over the past 26 years and has experience at numerous levels including retail, government, post-secondary education, industry and on-farm.
She has a bachelor of science in agriculture from the University of Manitoba and recently completed a master’s in business administration from the Shannon School of Business at Cape Breton University.
