At UFA Co-operative Ltd., Steve Kovacs has been appointed to the newly created position of chief sales officer, based out of UFA’s head office in Calgary. He will be involved in the co-op’s continued expansion into Saskatchewan. Kovacs is a tenured executive with strong senior leadership experience, most recently as vice-president at Parkland Corp. His experience within the agricultural industry includes almost 15 years with Nutrien (formerly Agrium). No stranger to UFA, he spent several months on contract in 2020 as an advisor to its CFO.
“Steve’s appointment comes at an opportune moment for UFA,” said president and CEO Scott Bolton. “He brings the perfect mix of finance expertise and sales and marketing, along with a strong appreciation for the agri-food industry and the critical role that producers play in ensuring the stability of the global food supply.”
