A long-time friend of the ornamental industry has called it a career. Nufarm recently announced the retirement of National Ornamental Manager Arden Bull.
Arden’s career spanned 47 years in agriculture and specialty crop protection, including 28 years of turf, ornamental, greenhouse, and nursery technical sales. Arden led ornamental sales at Nufarm Americas, Inc. for the past 12 years and cultivated trusted relationships with greenhouse and nursery growers and key university and private researchers across the US.
“On behalf of Nufarm, I thank Arden for his vision and commitment to Nufarm, the ornamental market, and the many greenhouse and nursery customers he supported,” says Blaine Pinkerton, Director, Turf and Ornamental Sales. “Arden has had a significant impact on our success and our customers’ livelihoods. We will always regard his achievements with gratitude and wish him the happiest retirement.”
Arden plans to spend more time with his wife, Laska, and their family. He envisions his time will include more fishing with grandsons and attending the dance events of his granddaughters. He also anticipates more travel, bike rides, woodwork, time to go on a mission trip, and give back to his community at the local Unity House and Elder Care Home.
“I want to thank Nufarm for believing in me and allowing me to share my vision for the ornamental market. The expansion and growth has been a great challenge, and it has been a great ride for me” Arden says. “I will always look fondly on the experience and the professional and personal relationships I’ve gained.”
Nufarm says it will remain dedicated to providing a top-notch team of reliable turf and ornamental experts. It will also remain thankful to Arden Bull. Ornamental customers seeking assistance should contact Greenhouse Customer Manager Brian Rund.
