OASIS Grower Solutions (OGS) recently added Ashley Cook to its team. With responsibilities that include customer support, along with supporting the efforts of OGS’ North American sales team, Cook brings a fresh perspective to the company, which is celebrating its 60th year.
“I’m excited to work for a company so steeped in the grower industry and so much a part of the future of farming,” says Cook. “Especially with its involvement in and commitment to hydroponic growing and more efficient and sustainable farming methods.”
Cook’s passion for growing and gardening dates back years, with her membership in the Garden Club of Kent and her community garden plot, not to mention her plans to volunteer at an urban youth garden program at Akron’s Front Porch.
Prior to joining OGS, Cook worked at a fifth generation family farm in Kent, Beckwith Orchards, where she learned the basics of the fruit industry from the ground up — helping with the harvest and learning the business’ retail side through work on the sales floor and in the bakery. Cook has a Bachelor’s Degree in corporate finance from The University of Akron.
