Growers Group hires Jeanine West
West has nearly 20 years of experience in horticulture, holding a doctorate in plant physiology and a Master’s degree in freshwater biology. She continued her career as a successful senior manager at an ornamental nursery for nearly 10 years, before starting her own consulting company.
Over the last five years, West has supported LO’s Nursery Growers’ Sector Group with a number of initiatives, including phytosanitary certification, invasive species, pesticide regulations, and environmental issues.
West has the dedication and skills necessary to watch for, and respond, to new issues that are important to LO members. West has also built strong relationships with stakeholders, regulatory government agencies and researchers that can provide direction and build partnerships through new challenges.
LO members will now benefit from having a dedicated person to manage provincial/local issues on behalf of the group, while reporting directly to the Nursery Growers’ Group.
Jeanine can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 1-705-796-8812.
