Chicken Farmers of Canada has named its replacement for outgoing executive director Mike Dungate.
Michael Laliberté has been hired to lead the national chicken producer organization’s 25-member staff. Laliberté is very familiar with CFC, having worked for the organization for 26 years, most recently as director of operations.
“The Board of Directors undertook a robust, external recruitment process to find the right candidate,” said CFC chair Benoit Fontaine, “We are pleased that Michael Laliberté will be bringing his vast experience to the role and we look forward to working with him.”
Dungate, who was among the Canadian ag stakeholders present during the NAFTA negotiations in Ottawa this week, has served as executive director for CFC for over 20 years. While he’ll be staying on in an advisory role until the end of the year, his last day as executive director is Sept. 29.
