CFFO Welcomes New General Manager

The Board of Directors of the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario is pleased to announce the appointment of Tom Tavani as general manager.

Tom brings experience in Christian media marketing, agribusiness and operated his own real estate marketing company. He is a devoted Christian and family man who understands that everything belongs to God.

“Tom stood out as a candidate for this position,” says Ed Scharringa, CFFO president. “We believe he has the right skillset to meet the needs of this organization, and we were impressed by his sense of integrity and commitment.”

“I am very pleased to be appointed to this role,” says Tavani, who began his new position October 18. “Being good stewards of the land that God has given us is key to successful farming. I believe the work of the CFFO is crucial in bringing a Christian perspective to agricultural issues, and I look forward to advancing the CFFO’s mission and serving its members.”

Tom replaces Clarence Nywening, who began his role as interim general manager in early 2020.

“The Board of Directors offers its heartfelt thanks to Clarence, who held the role for much longer than originally anticipated, given the disruption of the pandemic,” says Scharringa. “He has served the CFFO faithfully, as he worked to both improve our internal operations and strengthen our relationships with fellow agricultural organizations.”
