After five decades, Karl Stensson, CEO and President of Sheridan Nurseries, recently announced he will step down. Throughout his career, Stensson has been a passionate industry supporter, serving as president of both Landscape Ontario and the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association. Stensson will continue in a reduced capacity as Vice Executive Chairman and Director of Brand Integrity for Sheridan. “It has been an honour to have worked with so many talented and dedicated people at Sheridan to help the company grow into the leader that it is today,” Stensson said. Colin Cruji will succeed Stensson as President and CEO. He has served as Senior Vice-president of Canada Bread Co., and holds an Executive MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. Founded in 1913, Sheridan operates eight garden centres and is one of Canada’s largest nursery growers.
