Simon has a wealth of field experience, which has been extremely useful in understanding current and future issues in the agri-food sector.

Simon is currently pursuing graduate studies in management and sustainable development at HEC Montréal. Simon’s in-depth knowledge of agricultural techniques, analytical mind and acute business sense are only matched by his desire to further expand sustainable development practises. His thirst for knowledge has made him a key collaborator on several different assignments for the AGÉCO team.
