Event Details

SIMSA/Nutrien round table event will occur on October 15th in Saskatoon

This event will have a special segment on innovation, and it will be an opportunity to meet and hear from Nutrien’s new VP of Procurement – Shane Curley, plus others.

Given the innovation item, we will be inviting the Saskatchewan Tech Association persons to attend and their President to speak on their abilities – to see if we can develop Saskatchewan solutions (other than them, this is a SIMSA members only event). 

As with all Roundtable events, the Nutrien staff - site GMs, procurement persons, etc. - will be assigned seats around the room (usually one per table).  SIMSA members can choose whom to sit with, on a first-come first-serve basis, by reading the name placard at each table.

Nutrien's confirmed attendees are (as with all round table events we will gain a few and lose a few as situations arise at the mines):

  • Trevor Berg – General Manager, Allan
  • Todd Denzin – Vice President, Commercial, Potash
  • Larry Long, Senior Vice President Operations, Potash
  • Todd Antill – Senior Director, IT
  • Candace Laing – Vice President, Sustainability & Stakeholder Relations
