Nathan OlsenNew Economic Development Coordinator – Nathan Olson

Nathan Olson joined Saddle Hills County on October 15, 2019 as the County’s new Economic Development Coordinator.

Olson has a graduate degree in Public Administration and worked for the City of Saskatoon. He has been searching for suitable, long-term role, preferably in a rural environment.

“I grew up in southwest Saskatchewan on a grain farm close to Swift Current and though I have lived outside of the province for over 12 years (including in Alberta) I was back in the area recently,” says Olson.

Olson says he operated a John Deere 9770 combine for a local farmer near Lake Diefenbaker, with about 11,000 acres.

“We were cutting malt barley and lentils. Prior to that, I operated a Case IH 4530 Floater doing contract work spreading granular chemical and fertilizer for the Pioneer Co-op,” he says.

Olson says that every person and every region benefits from taking the time to identify and develop their core strengths and broad potential.

“Essentially, I hope to make a tangible contribution to this larger cause in Saddle Hills County.”
