Plenty – SVP Farm Operations

In a rapidly evolving world where sustainable agriculture is becoming increasingly crucial, a pioneering company emerged. Their mission? To rewrite the rules of agriculture and revolutionize the way we produce greens all year around, regardless of the climate while also conserving water and land, and eliminating pesticides.

They faced a pivotal moment in their journey.

To spearhead their ambitious expansion plans and lead their global expansion pre-IPO, they needed a leader who possessed the perfect blend of entrepreneurial spirit, growth mindset, and a deep understanding of the food production space. Their internal talent team had struggled to find a suitable candidate amid a competitive market.
