Chris Higgins joins Boon Consulting Advisory Board
Boon Greenhouse Consultancy sees the addition of industry veteran Christopher Higgins to their Advisory Board as a way to provide additional strategic guidance to the company’s innovative approach to greenhouse growing processes and operations that are tailored to unique agricultural businesses.
Serge Boon, owner of Boon Greenhouse Consultancy, is in no way new to the challenges and ever-changing landscape of the commercial greenhouse industry. Serge grew up in the Netherlands (the land of greenhouses). He is a native of Westland, (one of the largest greenhouse regions in the world), he rode his bike past rows and rows of greenhouses every day, and has been working in them since the age of 12. He has held almost every job in the horticultural industry, from grower to researcher to upper management. Along the way he has learned everything from technology to best growing practices.
Boon Consultancy’s most valuable offering might be their ability to translate complicated technical jargon into easy-to-understand language, that can be shared with ambitious and intelligent newcomers to the industry that are looking to change their communities’ access to safe, fresh and healthy fresh produce.
“Higgins will strengthen our relationships with industry vendors and customers across the world of horticulture,” says Boon. “His 25-year commitment to the industry and ultimately our clients will only help to ensure that our diverse list of clients continues to be successful in a quickly changing and always challenging fresh produce world.”
Higgins 25 years of horticulture industry experience spans the full gamut of the industry. From supporting production greenhouse facilities to running his own businesses and hosting industry education events, his knowledge and network is vast.
