Want To Buy Grain? Joseph Is Your Man.

Joseph Billett

Co-owner / Grain Buyer Relations / General Manager

 

Joseph’s family is from Milden, SK, where the Billett Family Farm is located.  His dad, who was the only sibling of 5 to leave the farm, was stationed on Vancouver Island after joining the navy. A couple years after Joseph was born, the family relocated to Alberta, settling in Agfinity’s future hometown headquarters in Stony Plain.

When referring to his better half Amy, Joseph truly means it. Married in the spring of 2004, the family blossomed with the additions of three children, Hannah, Truett and Samuel.  They love adventuring, and spend as much time as they can inside their RV and by the ocean on regular trips to Tofino, BC.

Joseph has been in the agriculture and grain marketing industry for 10 years. He loves crafting vison and working with his team to move Agfinity forward! His role includes working with Feedlots, Grain Companies and Feed Mills, spending much of his time hunting the best grain buying opportunities on Agfinity.com.

For fun, Joseph competes in powerlifting and Strongman. Whether he’s helping a teammate reach a bench press milestone, or a grain buyer cover in a load of barley, building strong relationships, professionally and personally is his daily passion.

Jared Seitz

Co-owner / Trade Manager

 

Jared’s not only good at growing his facial hair, he’s also helped grow Agfinity since its inception in 2010. With Michelle, his incredible wife (and business partner), he also takes an active role in raising up two beautiful girls and one handsome, little rascal, whom he fondly calls “mini-me”.

Residing in Spruce Grove, AB, it was to Jared’s delight when Agfinity moved their headquarters back to his hometown of Stony Plain in June of 2014. How many people can say they work a block away from where they were born!? Well, aside from his business partner Joseph, not many!

You might be surprised to know, Jared received a bilingual high school diploma, has played over 10,000 hours of basketball, and finished half a novel before the reality of needing to support a young family set in. Though a novel may not be in his future, writing is still one of his favorite things to do. Check out the Agfinity newsletter if you’d like to read some of Jared’s essays.

A grain broker at heart, Jared loves putting deals together! To this day, he claims the best deal he ever made was with his future in-laws when they agreed to let him be boyfriend #1! … Being number one is never easy, “but that’s why I show up bright and early at Agfinity every day,” Jared exclaimed, “I want Agfinity to be the best brokerage there ever was and ever will be.”

Tracy Green

Senior Trader

 

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Tracy will attest: you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl. Though Tracy has been BC and Alberta bound most of her life, she often returns to visit extended family just outside of Regina. After 13 years in Surrey, BC, she, her husband Larry, and their 5 children, settled in Spruce Grove, Alberta in 2006.
Tracy’s background is in sales, building management and office administration.  After 7 years at the same company,  Tracy was ready for a new challenge and happily accepted a position at Agfinity Grain Brokers in 2014. She enjoys the fun, positive atmosphere and is delighted to be working with a wonderful team!

In her free time, Tracy enjoys long distance running, reading and spending time with her family and their Scottish Terrier, Sophie. But don’t let those hobbies fool you! Tracy is a social butterfly. “It’s true,” Tracy confessed. “Long runs are always better with a friend!”

Grain hasn’t moved? Settlement hasn’t arrived? Call Michelle.

Michelle Seitz

Co-owner / Customer Service Relations

 

Michelle started dating her future grain trading husband, Jared, when she was just 15! Though they got married less than a year after graduating, the couple planned a few tropical adventures, including a couple stops at their favorite place in the world, Hawaii, before starting a family in 2008, which grew again in 2010 and once more in 2012.

With three beautiful, energetic kids, Michelle’s hands (and heart) have never been so full. She loves the time she gets to spend with her friends and family and enjoys planning fun trips to go on. “Living in the moment is good, but you have to plan if you want those moments to be great!”

Involved as a co-owner since day one, Michelle finally joined the Agfinity team at the beginning of the 2016 harvest. She is determined, passionate and will do whatever necessary to resolve an issue. And though she’s a quick learner, she would be lying if she said the world of agriculture has been without a bit of a learning curve! …Then again, the 2016 harvest may have been a bit of a learning curve for everyone!

Glad to have you in the Agfinity inner-circle, Michelle!!

Lisa Granquist

Assistant Trader

 

For Lisa, family comes first! Her kids, Wyatt and Lauren, and her husband Randy, are what drive her to give her best, day in and day out.
The people in Lisa’s life have become accustomed to her crazy habit of escaping to the woods, mountains and meadows to prepare for Ultra Marathons and off-road races.  They weren’t always close, but Lisa and Vertical Inclines have become good friends! “A hill is like a bad harvest,” Lisa has told us, sometimes out of breath, “It sucks, but you get over it!”

Off the trail, Lisa is pushing her skills as a marketing professional. Though she had no expectations of going into the grain business once her children entered high school, she has thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and personal growth that have come within the ag industry, and wouldn’t trade it for $20/bushel canola. But then again, Lisa doesn’t have any canola to sell.

“If I’m busy and need something to get done, I put Lisa on the job. She always pulls through,” commented Agfinity Trade Manager, Jared Seitz.

Amy Billett

Co-owner / Financial Controller

 

Amy was born and raised in Abbotsford, BC, spending much of her time on her grandparents’ and uncle’s dairy farms. At the age of 14, she and her family traveled north to Dawson Creek, BC, where she stayed until graduation.

Amy’s love for animals meant many hours, days, months and years volunteering and working at a local veterinary clinic. In September 1998, she headed off to Edmonton and Spruce Grove to attend the University of Alberta where she graduated in the Spring of 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, as well as a Degree in Animal Science. Amy has been working in the agriculture industry ever since!

Amy married her true love, Joseph, in 2004. They now have three growing children, Hannah, Truett and Samuel. Between the three busy kiddos and working in the Agfinity offices, Amy has had no choice but to master her time management skills! Luckily for her, being busy is her specialty!
…But that’s not to say, she doesn’t enjoy taking a little time here and there with her family and extended family! Amy enjoys camping in the mountains and taking trips to her favourite place, Tofino, BC.

Amy also enjoys woodworking and decorating cakes, often tying up a bay in the garage or the kitchen for extended periods of time. But nobody’s complaining when Amy’s in the kitchen!! And if they did, it would be wise to remember that Amy’s husband is a powerlifter…

Amy has been involved with Agfinity from day one and loves working with the entire Agfinity team. She runs the accounts and logistics departments, aiming to ensure everyone’s grain gets where its supposed to go.
