Glacier FarmMedia is pleased to announce that Executive Vice-President Lynda Tityk has been named the 2020 Agri-Marketer of the Year by the Canadian Agri-Marketing Association (CAMA).

This recognition is a high point of a 30-year (and counting) career in advertising, publishing and event management.

“Throughout my career, it has been a great privilege to serve Canadian farmers,” said Lynda. “Today, as always, farmers are at the heart of what we do. That is the culture of Glacier FarmMedia and I have been determined to live up to that.”

Lynda began her agri-marketing career in 1990 with a position in classified ad sales at the Manitoba Co-operator, rising quickly to become the publication’s marketing manager just 10 years later. In 2002, she and five colleagues launched Farmers Independent Weekly as a new publication for Manitoba farmers. This publication was purchased in 2007 by the company that later became Glacier FarmMedia.

More recently, media and event brands such as Western Producer and Ag in Motion have joined the GFM family. Here in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has tested the GFM team as never before. Under Lynda’s leadership, events such as Ag in Motion, Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show and Farm Forum Event quickly pivoted to keep farmers and agribusiness connected. 

Lynda, we applaud your achievement as 2020 Agri-Marketer of the Year and thank you for your leadership, vision and mentorship through the years.
