McGregor Plant Sales has hired Menachem Ganon as vice president of international business. Ganon joins McGregor from Florexpo, where he was general manager and led its growth as the leading unrooted cutting farm in Costa Rica.
“Menachem brings tremendous international experience and relationships to McGregor Plant Sales,” says Cathy McClintock, company president. “He is a brilliant thinker and proven producer. Menachem will develop and execute growth strategies in Europe, Asia and emerging international markets. The new position will bring McGregor’s greater scale in its customer base and it will advance key product initiatives and breeder relations.”
Over the last 12 years, McGregor Plant Sales and Florexpo have developed an important alliance in the production and sales of vegetative cuttings. Today, Florexpo is a large perennial cuttings producer. It has a wide selection of annuals from some prestigious breeders, and it offers an aggressive flexibility to new product channels–grasses, woodies and organic herbs. The relationship between McGregor and Florexpo is further strengthened by this management shift, and it allows the alliance to focus and build in rich marketplaces globally.
