Speedling is excited to announce the addition of Dick Shreve to our ornamental sales team. He brings with him extensive industry experience and a passion for ornamental production.
From 1980 to 1998 Dick owned and operated Shreve Farm – a 120 acre vegetable farm, growing mostly green beans. Selling to Kroger, fresh markets and running a small u-pick section. In 1991 Dick had started Shreve Greenhouse, selling finished goods to garden centers and also participating in the propagation market through brokers.When the greenhouse became too large of an operation to effectively manage both it and the farm Dick decided his passion was in the Greenhouse. In 1998 he sold his vegetable farm and focused solely on Shreve Greenhouse until he sold in 2015.
Dick described his transition to Speedling as a great fit. He feels right at home walking the greenhouses with our growers, bringing a keen eye for quality assurance. He is more than a sales person, with well-rounded skills in growing and business he is ready to cultivate and grow relationships with our customers.
