Gavin Betker graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons.) in 2004. Throughout his career, Gavin has gained expertise in business development, farm management consulting, and teaching. Having grown up on a farm, he shares the Backswath passion for advancing farm management.
After obtaining his business degree, Gavin was a front-line production manager in a window manufacturing plant. He later transferred to Calgary, where he managed the service and delivery operations for Southern Alberta. In 2010, he decided to change career tracks and came back to his roots in Manitoba to farm, where he spent three years as a hired hand on the family farm near Souris, MB.
Gavin began working for Backswath in 2014, putting his business and farm backgrounds together. Most recently, Gavin has been working first-hand with the development of EAGLE software with Backswath. He is also a part-time instructor at the University of Manitoba in the School of Agriculture, which he enjoys very much.
