A trial management-team merger aims to bring better service to Alberta’s wheat and barley farmers.

Tom Steve is currently general manager of the Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) and with his new appointment as interim general manager for Alberta Barley, now leads both commissions.

The two boards have approved a four-month trial period to evaluate the viability of merging management teams, an Alberta Barley release stated yesterday.

“Our board saw this as an excellent opportunity to leverage the strong working relationship we have with the Alberta Wheat Commission,” said Jason Lenz, Alberta Barley Chair, in the release.

“By exploring the idea of a single management team, we hope to identify ways to provide greater value to the province’s wheat and barley farmers.”

Alberta Barley and AWC have worked together since 2012.

The release also indicated AWC chair, Kevin Auch, believes that the two commissions can achieve optimal productivity and best serve farmers with a shared management structure.

Early next year, Alberta Barley and AWC will decide on implementing a joined management structure which would operate under a single general manager and report to both boards, according to the release.
