Hiebert has significant experience in government, developing trade and corporate governance.
Hiebert was a member of Parliament in Canada for 11 years (2004-2015) and then returned to the private sector. During his time in office, he was appointed parliamentary secretary for Defense and later parliamentary secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs. He also served on the natural resources, finance and international trade committees.
"Russ Hiebert brings valuable resources and substantial experience to LeanLife," said Stan Lis, chief executive officer of LeanLife Health.
"I look forward to working with the LeanLife Health team to help realize the value of extracting shelf-stable omega-3 fatty acids from flax seed -- one of the richest plant sources of this essential fatty acid. The long-lasting shelf life of the flax seed oil produced by LeanLife's patented method appears to make it an ideal fortified food ingredient," said Hiebert.
Hiebert has developed a worldwide network of contacts in business and foreign governments with the ability to connect people with key decision makers, joint venture partners and investors, for the purpose of developing trade and other business opportunities.
