Our Mission

“Leading brands, a company-wide customer commitment, plus a skilled and dedicated team - this is why Cervus excels at what we do”

Cervus LP is in the business of acquiring and operating authorized agricultural and industrial equipment dealerships by facilitating dealer succession and providing capital, resources, training and opportunity for the next generation of dealers to effectively position them for profitability and growth.


“We are a leadership company building diverse and robust businesses that can perform through any cycle.”

Growth Strategy

Effective, Efficient Operations

We are migrating to a system of centralized processing and administration in order to realize on the efficiencies now available through centralized processing.

Trained, Experienced, Engaged Employees

A strong commitment to employee ownership ensures our employees have a vested interest in the company’s performance and enjoy the fruits of their labour while providing Cervus LP with a competitive advantage.

Diversified, Well-Capitalized Dealership Networks

We need to grow in order to enhance the range and depth of services we offer our customers and keep pace with consolidation. Significant growth opportunities to take advantage of include consolidation of equipment dealerships, plus geographical and market diversification.


Growth Strategy

Managing The Competitive Environment

We believe that in order for Cervus LP to have sustainable earnings we must answer the competitive threat on three levels: attention to our customers, partnering with our suppliers and strong market presence.

Customer Focus

Customer satisfaction is a key performance criteria used in evaluating dealership performance. Customer input is obtained formally and informally and is used to modify dealership processes to improve our customer service.

Partnering With Suppliers

A strong relationship with our manufacturers is critical to ensuring product delivery, price competition and quick response to competitive pressures.

Strong Market Presence

We believe that a strong market presence is a key factor in driving top and bottom line results. We accomplish this by providing world-class products and services to our customers at competitive prices.


“These are positive times for Cervus LP. Strong demand, especially in the agricultural sector, plus acquisition opportunities at reasonable values, means we are in the forefront of a public market looking for growth stories like ours.”

Senior Management

Peter Lacey, CEO, has been affiliated with the farm equipment industry for many years, having bought his first John Deere dealership in 1982 in Red Deer, AB. Mr. Lacey founded Cervus Corp. (the predecessor to Cervus LP, in 1999).

Randy Muth, CFO, holds the CA designation (Alberta) and the CPA designation (Illinois) and joined Cervus LP in the fall of 2005. Randy has worked for national and international companies in Canada and the US in finance and operational roles since the early 1980s.

Graham Drake, VP of Operations for the Agriculture Division, has been an owner/operator of a farm equipment dealership and has held various managerial and sales roles with John Deere Ltd. since 1982.

John Higgins, VP of Operations for the Construction Division, has held various managerial roles in the industrial equipment and transportation sector since the late 1970s
