Rob Stenson (Ag Growth International)
Rob received his Bachelor of Arts in 1993 from the University of Saskatchewan and his Master of Business Administration from the Richard Ivey School of Business, University of Western Ontario, in 1995. While attending Western he became involved in Batco Manufacturing, a start-up manufacturer of agricultural equipment based in Swift Current, SK. Rob realized this segment of the agricultural industry was highly fragmented and he co-founded Ag Growth in 1996 as a vehicle to acquire complementary manufacturers. Over the course of his career, AGI made nine acquisitions and grew from one facility with revenues of $250,000 to a global leader in grain handling, storage and conditioning equipment with manufacturing facilities in Canada, the United States and Europe and 2010 revenues of $262 million.
