  • Geneiva McNeale, GLM Leadership Solutions: “I’m most excited about when we finally get to a point where leaders who have been successful in their business and leadership start to realize and embrace the changes that are being requested by younger, new talent.”
  • Benjamin Molenda, BEST Human Capital & Advisory Group: “I’m excited about people our age shaping the industry.”
  • Harrison Downing, BEST Human Capital & Advisory Group: “I’m excited about horticulture finding the best ways to use technology.”
  • Paige Franks, BEST Human Capital & Advisory Group: “A big reason for the labor shortage is stemming from burnout. I am curious to see how the next generation mitigates that with work-life balance and mental health resources.”
  • Justin Bartlett, Legacy Labor: “I’m excited to see how businesses will evolve with technology. It will not replace the workforce, it will help it.”
  • Megan Wright, masLabor: “I’m excited for ongoing innovation that is continuing to support the industry, and I have been meeting more young people joining our community.”
  • Lawrence Williams, Manzana: “The growers I work with are a great group of individuals. They’re always trying to do innovative things to help their company and the industry.”
