Paul Earl joined the Asper School of Business in 2003, after a long and varied career in the western Canadian grain industry. He worked for United Grain Growers, the Grain Transportation Agency, and, just prior to coming to the Asper School, had spent about five years with the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association. He was then one of the founding members of the Department of Supply Chain Management when it was formed in the Asper School in 2004.
About half way through his career in the grain industry, he undertook doctoral studies at the University of Manitoba, completing his degree in 1992. His thesis examined the farm movement in western Canada from about 1918 to 1935, and examined how three prairie Wheat Pools, and the Canadian Wheat Board came into existence, and the ideologies held by farmers shaped those institutions.
Paul has had a long relationship with the Transport Institute. He was a research associate with the Institute in 1987 and 1988 while working on his degree, and completed several studies with the Institute over the following years. Paul looks forward to this new phase of his career with the Institute.
