The OPIC Board of Directors is pleased to announce Daryl Vermey as our new Managing Director. Daryl will work closely with Lori Moser as he transitions into this role. We appreciate the tremendous contribution Lori has made to our organization and are very happy she is not going far, having accepted the position of Manager of Swine Health Ontario (SHO). Daryl brings great experience to this new challenge and we look forward to working with him.
Daryl grew up on a farrow to finish hog farm in Chatham-Kent and brings both understanding and appreciation of pork production in Ontario to his new role as Managing Director. Daryl is very excited to bring this background together with his experience in the agricultural sector to the Ontario Pork Industry Council to carry on our work for the betterment of the Swine Industry.
He graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor’s of Science in Agronomy in 2005 and a Master’s of Science in Agronomy in 2008. Before joining OPIC, Daryl served as a Research and Development Coordinator for the Ontario Bean Growers, a Policy Analyst for the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association, and a Program Coordinator at the Agricultural Adaptation Council.
When not working, Daryl loves being with his young family. As an avid gardener, Daryl enjoys spending his leisure time ensuring his kids aren’t running through the vegetable and flower gardens.
Please join us in welcoming Daryl and wishing Lori all the best in her future role.
The OPIC Board of Directors.
