Rancho Tissue Technologies Names Managing Director

Susana Vanzie-Canton has been named managing director of Rancho Tissue Technologies (RTT), allowing owner and founder Heather May to take on a more high-level role and increase her focus on the lab’s development and innovation activities.

“Since starting the lab, we have turned Rancho Tissue Technologies into a state-of-the-art, environmentally controlled laboratory that is equipped to produce and sell 4 million plants per year internationally,” May says. “Placing Susana in her new role enables me to focus on the company’s continued growth and evolution.”

Vanzie-Canton, who joined RTT in 2007 as a researcher, will oversee day-to-day activities at the company and oversee the growth of RTT’s line of tissue-cultured products. Those products include succulent plants, cut flowers, perennials, tropicals and ornamental grasses, among others.
