Syngenta Canada Inc. has announced the retirement of Jay Bradshaw (pictured: left) as president and territory head for Canada, and the appointment of Trevor Heck (pictured: right) as his successor. Bradshaw’s retirement takes effect at the end of May, with Heck assuming his roles effective June 1.

Bradshaw leaves Syngenta as a highly respected leader in Canadian agriculture, who has headed the organization’s Canadian operations for almost 17 years. His career spans some 36 years, starting as a sales representative based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, in the early 1980s, and including progressively more senior roles with two other companies, prior to joining Syngenta Canada in October 2001. 
 
Heck began his career with a Syngenta legacy company in 1992 as a sales representative based in Provost, Alberta. From there, he assumed various other roles in Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta, followed by assignments in Australia and the United Kingdom. Heck returned to Canada in 2003, and had successive roles as District Sales Manager and Head of Key Accounts in Western Canada. Since 2011, Heck has served as the Head of Marketing with the Syngenta Canada organization.

“The team at Syngenta Canada is focused on providing crop protection and seeds innovations in support of Canadian farmers across the country’s major crops, including wheat, barley, canola, corn, potatoes, pulses, soybeans, and specialty crops,” Heck said. “In this new role, I look forward to continuing and advancing this work in collaboration with farmers and the broader agricultural sector to support the sector’s growth and competitiveness and help realize Canada’s full potential as a leader in agricultural innovation.”
