WINNIPEG – Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) would like to announce the hiring of Chad Saxon to the position of Communications Coordinator.

Chad comes to MBP after spending 16 years working in his hometown of Estevan, Saskatchewan where he was employed by the Estevan Mercury. Upon joining the weekly newspaper in 1998, he was named Sports Editor and held that position until 2008 when he was named Editor.

Outside of work Chad was involved in the community, spending six years on the Estevan Bruins Junior A Hockey Club’s Board of Directors. He was also a member of Estevan’s New Arena Committee, which guided the construction and fundraising efforts for the city’s $22 million arena which opened in 2011.

“We are excited to add Chad to our team at Manitoba Beef Producers,” said President Heinz Reimer. “His previous experience in the media will be beneficial to MBP as we work on behalf of producers throughout the province.
