Curriculum vitae Robert Savage

Passionate about agriculture, entrepreneurship and finance. Member of the Order of Agronomists of QUEBEC since 1985 and MBA graduate. 

I work with ag-business and entrepreneurs needing strategic guidance. My university education in science combined with my master's degree in administration and my experience in the operations of an agricultural business allow me to analyze, quantify and solve with confidence various problems related to the agri-food industry.

I have extensive expertise in finance, agricultural insurance, negotiation, mediation and agricultural legislation. My contacts with various Canadian, American and European companies and organizations bring an international perspective to my interventions.
