Dennis Crum named 2013 Head Grower of the Year

Dennis Crum

Four Star Greenhouse is proud to announce Greenhouse Grower magazine has named our Director of Growing, Dennis Crum, as 2013 Head Grower of the Year. The magazine's editors noted a key reason he was selected was because of "...his willingness to help solve growers' production problems," among other things.

Each year, several head growers are nominated and evaluated by a select advisory panel chosen by the Greenhouse Grower editors. This prestigious honor was given to Dennis in recognition of his tireless efforts to help industry growers, during the "Evening of Excellence" event, held during the OFA Short Course in July, in Columbus, OH.

His enthusiasm for growing is widespread. Four Star President Tom Smith summed it up for the magazine: "Dennis has a true passion for the industry. He is extremely knowledgeable, and I think he knows the Proven Winners® material better than anybody in the world. He has a great feel not only for what plants will sell well and make consumers successful in the garden, but also what plants will produce well for growers."

The entire Four Star family is proud of Dennis Crum's accomplishment. Have a thought to share with him? Send it to mail@pwfourstar.com and we'll pass it along.
