Mike Cey joined Ag-West Bio in 2011, after 20 years of experience in the private sector. He says he found the transition “relatively seamless,” and that he was able to build upon the many relationships that he had formed over the years.

Bioscience and agriculture have always been a part of Mike’s life: from the time he was a child on the farm near Scott, Saskatchewan; to his choice of studies (he has a degree in Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan and an MBA from the University of Fredericton); and finally, in his present career at Ag-West Bio.

Mike takes pride in being part of a team that advances Saskatchewan’s bioeconomy by making meaningful connections and leading groups that he believes will advance the sector. He enjoys the many opportunities to connect with different people who have a variety of gifts and talents to offer to the industry. “I believe working with people is what makes any job rewarding,” he says.
