Jim Anderson – Founder and CEO
Jim grew up on the family farm just south of Rimbey, AB. After graduating from Olds College with his Farm and Ranch diploma, he moved back to Rimbey and began farming with his father Ron. After farming together for numerous years, Jim took over the family farm and his father Ron retired. Jim has enjoyed a long and successful career in agriculture with numerous personal and business achievements. One of the most notable achievements being his development of the Frostfree Nosepump. Though he has recently passed on the reins of the farm to the younger of his two sons, Brendon, Jim is still very involved in the farming operations. Passing on the now third generation farm to Brendon has given Jim more time to pursue his two biggest passions; Frostfree Nosepumps Ltd. and the completion of the Anderson’s retirement home on the edge of the family farm.
Jackie Anderson – Vice President and Controller
Jackie grew up in the Calgary, AB area. After graduating from the University of Alberta with a degree in Home Economics, she moved to Rimbey, AB to take up her first position as the District Home Economist for the area. This is where she met Jim and became his wife and business partner. Jackie has always been intensely involved with the farming and Frostfree Nosepump operations. She wears many hats very effectively including worker, accountant, business development, sales & marketing etc. in both the professional and volunteer positions she holds. The addition of Jim and Jackie’s oldest son Jeff to the Frostfree Nosepump team has begun to take some of the demand off Jackie, allowing her to focus more on some of the volunteering she enjoys and also the completion of the Anderson’s retirement home on the edge of the family farm.
Jeff Anderson – Sales and Marketing
Jeff also grew up on the family farm in Rimbey, AB. After graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Commerce, he set out to develop the business skills he needed to be in business for himself. During the following 10 years after completion of his degree, Jeff acquired skills in payroll, advertising, sales, marketing, and sales management predominantly in the motorsports industry. He then started his own little hotshot/moving company previous to having the opportunity to join forces with his parents at Frostfree Nosepumps Ltd.
