Federal Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau has named Justine Hendricks as the next President and Chief Executive Officer for Farm Credit Canada.

Hendricks moves into the role after serving as Chief Corporate Sustainability Officer and Senior Vice-President, Sustainable Business and Enablement with Export Development Canada.

FCC Board Chairperson Jane Halford says Justine has significant experience in the financial industry and in leading teams that serve exporters and investors in a wide range of sectors, including agriculture.

Hendricks says Agriculture is an area of great importance to our economy, and the industry plays a global role in food security. The Canadian food system is well-recognized around the world for its contributions, and we have an opportunity to do even more.

Hendricks will assume the new role on January 30, 2023.
