CAPI appointments

John F.T. Scott – former CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers for 22 years and past chair of Vineland Research and Innovation Centre – has assumed a new role. He’s joining the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI) as chair of the board.

Scott succeeds Ted Bilyea, who resigned earlier this year. Bilyea will be tapped from time to time as a special advisor.

 

At CAPI’s annual meeting on June 20, 2017, two new members joined the board. Chantelle Donahue is the vice president and commercial seed manager for Global Edible Oil Solutions-Specialties (GEOS-S) at Cargill Limited. Deborah Stark is the former deputy minister, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. She retired from that position in 2016.
