About Us

Rob Davies and Tom Steve are the respective general managers of Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat Commission and serve as the publishers of GrainsWest. The magazine’s managing editor is Trevor Bacque, who is responsible for its day-to-day operations. The latest addition to the GrainsWest team is Ian Doig, our Associate Editor, who is responsible for editorial content and story assignments in conjunction with the Managing Editor.

GrainsWest wouldn’t be what it is without the design and advertising expertise from our sales and design lead, Tommy Wilson.

In addition, the EAB also features communications staff from both Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat Commission.
