Dr Mark Redmond will begin his new role as Chief Executive Officer on March 1st.

The board feels Redmond will help drive RDAR forward in a continued collaboration with producers, scientists and researchers pushing the boundaries of Alberta's agricultural potential.

He has 25-plus years’ experience in senior business, research, and academic positions in the agriculture sector.

Redmond says he's excited to be part of this group, to build on this foundation, and to extend RDAR’s commitment to excellence and resolve to respond to the needs of Alberta’s producers.

"I look forward to meeting and engaging with the agriculture industry, research community, and government. Together we will build strong relationships based on trust and understanding and fulfil RDAR’s vision for Alberta: to see our agriculture and food sectors achieve their full potential through producer-led investments in research and innovation."

RDAR is a new organization with a mandate to guide Alberta's agriculture research in a new direction.
