Greenstreet Growers, Inc. Taps Industry Veteran for Leadership Position
Greenstreet Growers, Inc. announces that industry veteran, Pete Gilmore, has joined the Greenstreet organization this week. Pete will provide sales support and logistical assistance to green businesses purchasing Ball Seed plant lines from Greenstreet Growers, as well as manage the wholesale plant production division that serves both the landscaping trade as well as both retail locations in Lothian, Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia.
Pete has over thirty-five years experience in the green industry in many different capacities, including as a national broker/sales representative, sales manager, and owner of a greenhouse company. Pete had also previously held the position of sales manager for a division of Proven Winners.
“We started as a wholesale liner & finish grower, that division has always been our priority, as well as part of our identity,” says Ray Greenstreet, owner of Greenstreet Growers, Inc. “With the addition of Pete, we’re gaining a wealth of industry information, as well as a fresh perspective on the operations that we currently have in place. That is invaluable since one of our key goals is growth.”
Greenstreet Growers, Inc. is one of the country’s premier wholesale growers, and young plant producer. Greenstreet Growers, Inc. is a Platinum young plant supplier to Ball Seed.
