"Agriculture has been the driving force of The Royal for more than 90 years," says Sandra Banks, CEO of The Royal. "We're thrilled to have someone of Peter's experience and expertise on our team."
An agriculture graduate of the University of Guelph, Peter Hohenadel has worked as a farm journalist and an advertising agency practitioner. His career in agriculture has brought him into contact with leading agri-businesses and farmers across Canada.

I'm happy to be involved in recognizing those achievements and supporting that community."
As Director, Agriculture and Food, Peter Hohenadel will work with Royal staff and volunteers to ensure the Royal's many agricultural competitions attract the very best in Canadian livestock and crops.
