Colin Steen: Revolutionizing Independent Seed Leadership at IPSA

Legacy Agripartners’ CEO Colin Steen is setting a new benchmark in agribusiness as the newly appointed leader of the Independent Professional Seed Association (IPSA).


With a rich history in the sector, including impactful roles at Syngenta Ventures and Golden Harvest, Colin’s focus has always been crystal clear: prioritize the farmer and stakeholder relationships.

Colin’s career move to Legacy Agripartners from larger corporations marks a shift towards nurturing closer customer connections and managing a dynamic, smaller team. This strategic transition underscores his commitment to the independent seed sector, particularly in non-GMO and organic markets.

Legacy Agripartners, under Colin’s leadership, boasts a diverse portfolio with TriCal Superior Forage, DF Seeds, and Legacy Seeds. Each entity retains its unique identity while benefiting from strategic and operational support. As IPSA’s president, Colin’s vision is to expand the association, enhancing the influence and competitiveness of independent seed companies in the agri-food landscape.

Beyond his professional endeavors, Colin is a community and family man, deeply involved in local hockey and outdoor activities. His roots in agriculture, growing up on a Saskatchewan farm, continue to shape his leadership and dedication to the agricultural community.
