Viterra appoints new Eastern region grower relationship manager

Viterra has appointed Mark Abell as its new Eastern region Grower Relationship Manager to support the business in the continual development and improvement of Viterra’s service to grower customers.

Mark brings 20 years of Viterra operations experience to the role, beginning as a harvest worker at Viterra’s Port Giles terminal and working his way up to Operations Coordinator where he was responsible for managing multiple sites.

Viterra’s grower relationship managers offer tailored support to grower customers, and assist in navigating all aspects of our network including operations, transactions and marketing.  Mark joins Kym Scott and Andrew Lehmann, the grower relationship managers for Viterra’s Western and Central regions.

Mark believes his years of operational experience will be helpful in his new position.

“A big part of this role is connecting with growers to help them navigate our business,” Mark says.

“I can draw on my knowledge of our business to improve the communication between growers and Viterra and help connect our customers with the right resources.”

Mark looks forward to getting to know a new region and group of growers, coming from his previous role in Viterra’s Central region.

“I’m passionate about agriculture, and I’m excited to learn about a new agricultural region, it’s growers, and how I can create value for them,” Mark says.

“I’m here to help, and I encourage growers to get in touch whenever I can assist in navigating our network.”

Viterra General Manager Accumulation & Grower Services, Andrew Wilsdon says that Viterra’s grower relationship managers are just one of the ways the business is ensuring they meet their customers’ needs.

“The ability to have someone from the business who is knowledgeable and easily accessible is a huge support to our grower customers, particularly during harvest when growers need to be making quick, assured decisions,” says Andrew.

“We are excited to welcome Mark into this role, where he can share his understanding and experience with our Eastern region growers.”

Previous Eastern region Grower Relationship Manager, Todd Stanford will continue supporting growers as Viterra Grower Services Manager.
