#RichardsonIs is a new campaign that we are launching to introduce you to some of the great people who work for our company.
This week, #RichardsonIs…Janelle, a grain merchant who’s been part of the Richardson Pioneer team for over six years.
When she first joined Richardson as a summer student, Janelle never thought she’d have the opportunity to grow her career so quickly in such short time.
“Having been raised on a farm in a small town, a career in agriculture was never top of mind. I really thought that ‘the grass must be greener on the other side’. But after leaving home and pursuing different interests, I came to learn that small town farm life was something that I really did enjoy!”
As a grain merchant, Janelle works closely with our farm customers to help them market their grain and build business plans that best suit their farm’s needs. Once their grain is delivered to her elevator in Provost, Alberta, she works alongside our rail coordinators to arrange grain shipping to the end-use customer.
Outside of work, farm life is what takes up most of her time as Janelle’s husband is also a farmer.
