Meet Our Team

Want To Buy Grain? Joseph Is Your Man.

Joseph Billett

President

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.

Need to pay a bill!?

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.

Bryce Taylor

Buyer Relations

As a youngster, Bryce was brought up as a city boy in the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario.  His parents decided, luckily for him, that they needed to get away from the big city life and moved their family to small town southwestern Ontario.

During his high school years, Bryce was getting his hands dirty learning how to prep land, plant and harvest crops for local farmers.  Later, he was offered an opportunity to help run a cash crop and cow calf family farm where he raised his family.

He was a crop planner and grain marketer.  Always looking for the best opportunities to sell his grain.  After leaving the operation he settled down on a hobby farm where he worked at a grain elevator receiving grain from farmers and talking about grain prices with farmers.

After spending 3 decades producing and handling grain, he decided to start a new career marketing grain. He now spends his working days enthusiastically working with the Agfinity Team to help find the best grain selling and buying opportunities.  Outside of working hours, he enjoys his time with the love of his life on their hobby farm and watching his adult children succeed in their own lives.

When not at Agfinity, Austin enjoys playing his guitars, spending time outdoors, and playing and collecting various types of games, both card and console.

Monique Bryldt

Customer Experience Coordinator

Monique grew up in a small town in Southern Alberta, so you would think she knew a bit about agriculture. Well, she did not. Her father was an operations manager for a gas plant and her mother worked in a bank. She did, however, learn the benefits of growing up in small town. Everyone knows and takes care of everyone. Therefore, when her youngest was born, she and her family moved to Stony Plain. She wanted her kids to experience the same small-town atmosphere that she knew growing up.

Monique was employed in the secretarial and customer service field for years until she decided that she was the best person to raise her kids was her. When she did rejoin the workforce after her youngest started school, she discovered agriculture. She has learned so much about different grain in her years and can execute a conversation with a farmer, buyer, anyone interested in agriculture. She takes pride in helping all clients and providing them with the exceptional customer service. She always has a smile on her face that you will see through the phone when she answers.

She enjoys, going for walks, reading, and spending time with her family.

Penelope

Many of you that have visited the Agfinity office have had the opportunity to meet Penelope. She is a wrinkly, snorty, snoring British Bulldog, lovingly dubbed Penelope Sprinkles Billett by the Billett children, because everyone in the family needs a middle name. Penelope has unofficially become the Agfinity mascot and “therapy” dog, often giving team members the opportunity to burn off some steam playing with her or taking her for a walk. She often spends days at the office and will place herself right in your direct path when entering and exiting the building. Of course, why wouldn’t she! On a sunny day, it’s the best place to soak up the warm rays while keeping an eye on the world outside.

Penelope loves to greet visitors, usually with an excess of saliva and doggy kisses. She also loves hanging with the Agfinity team. She contributes noisily to the team huddles every morning she is in the office and does a thorough check of everyone’s bags, purses and lunches on a daily basis to ensure everything is safe and acceptable, but in all truth, she’s just looking for something to eat. Eating is Penelope’s number one pastime with sleeping following at a very close second.

Penelope thoroughly enjoys meeting new people and is more than happy to greet you at the front door when you come to visit.
