John Wells joined the Rimol Greenhouse Systems team in 2005 to cover sales and service of the New England region. John brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from his diverse background in the greenhouse and horticulture industry.
After attending Louisiana Tech University, John went to work for a large grower in Virginia. It was there that John learned to appreciate the luxury of automation and gained an understanding of the sensitive needs of a growing environment.
Up for an adventure and a change of scenery, John moved to the West Coast to work for a grower in California specializing in vegetative propagation. However, eventually the lure of family connections drew John and his wife Karen to Southern New Hampshire to settle and raise their family.
Upon his return to New England, John worked for a grower in a fast paced, marketing-oriented company. It was this experience that led John in the direction of sales and to his current position at Rimol Greenhouse Systems.
“This industry is a great one, as there are so many levels to apply yourself,” explained John. “You can choose to be well-connected to the earth and farm, be on the cutting edge of biotechnology, or be somewhere in between. Being is sales allows me to meet so many people all over the region. I see hard work, talent, and ability come together into success. This is an exciting time in our industry. Things are changing quickly, sometimes more quickly than we like, and improvements are happening just as fast.”
