“I was looking to get back into the Grain business and the opportunity in Assiniboia with Paterson Grain was an exciting career proposal that I wanted to pursue. I have been fortunate to meet Gord Mellquist who was in the same position with Paterson Grain for over 40 years and we have become good friends and Gord has introduced me to lots of people in the community,” added Kutz.
