Canola Product Line Manager

Location:  High River, AB (Near Calgary)

Our client, Nutrien, sells a wide variety of canola brands through over 250 Nutrien Ag retails across Canada, including Invigor, DeKalb, and their own proprietary brand; Proven Seed. As the Canola Product Line Manager, you will work very closely with the Canola Seed Production Manager and the Proven Seed Brand Manager as you drive the canola business.

There are two broad parts to this job. Sourcing the canola seed and selling the canola seed through the Nutrien retails in Canada. 

Sourcing: You will source inventory in two ways: First, you will work very closely with the Proven Canola Seed Production Manager who will grow and process your proprietary Proven varieties.  Second, you will buy seed from suppliers like Corteva, BASF and Bayer for resale through your stores.  This requires demand forecasting, long term planning, and inventory management.

Selling: The second part of the job is to work closely with the Brand Manager and the Retail Division Managers to drive the sale of canola seed through your 250 + Nutrien Ag retails. You will take their orders, forecast demand, and supply them with inventory.  You will support their sales efforts and provide them with training, marketing support and pricing guidance.  

To be considered, you must be an astute businessperson with a solid understanding of Canadian crop production agriculture and a positive collaborative team approach. You must have at least five years (preferably more) of Ag business experience.  Specific canola sector experience, ag retail experience and experience managing people is not a requirement, but is definitely an asset we will consider. Preference will be given to candidates with a proven track record of working in a complex role with lots of moving parts.
