Calgary agribusiness project management firm AgCall has promoted its vice-president of sales and marketing to the president’s desk.
Company founder and CEO Gordon Butcher announced Arron Madson’s appointment as president on Tuesday.
“Arron has been a partner in the company for the last three years,” Butcher said. “Along with leading the business development side of the business, he will now also oversee management of the company.”
Butcher, who remains CEO, will be involved in the strategic direction of the company and will become more involved in specialized consulting to the agriculture industry, Madson said.
“Gordon’s connections and reputation within the industry have served the company well for more than 20 years and his continued leadership will allow us to expand into some exciting new directions.”
AgCall manages project outsourcing, data services and “social marketing” techniques for agriculture and agri-food businesses, and also offers human resources, administration and job search services.
