Hall of Famer in our midst

AdFarmers, clients, family and a huge circle of friends and supporters watched with pride on November 4 as Kim McConnell was inducted in the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame at a special ceremony at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, Ontario.

The recognition is a huge one for Kim, for AdFarm and for Canadian agriculture. Kim has devoted his 30-year professional career to building and branding Canadian agriculture, and this lifetime achievement recognition is a well-earned honor.

At age 28, Kim started his own marketing communications company focused solely on agriculture – a company that under his leadership eventually formed AdFarm – with him as its first CEO. He has earned recognition as Entrepreneur of the Year, Agri-Marketer of the Year, Mentor of the Year and now adds Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame inductee to an impressive list.

Kim is an innovative catalyst, a strategic leader and a tireless advocate for agriculture. We are proud of you Kim, and this brilliant journey is definitely continuing.
