OHP Adds Pilon to Technical Staff
OHP, Inc. recently announced that Paul Pilon has joined the company as technical manager.
“We are pleased to add Paul to our team of dedicated professionals,” says Dan Stahl, OHP vice president and general manager. “He’s a former grower and he brings growing experience, crop expertise, product knowledge, diagnostic ability, research capabilities, communication skills, and other strengths to OHP.”
Paul is well-known and respected in the horticulture industry, having founded and operated Perennial Solutions Consulting since 2005. His client list included key growers from every region of the U.S. and internationally.
He has written numerous articles for industry trade magazines and he authored a book on perennial production in 2006.
“As hard as the decision to leave my successful consulting business behind may seem, the choice was somewhat easier than I thought,” he says. “Being an industry leader, OHP has the resources to pursue research and projects I could never attempt on my own and they are committed to developing products growers need.”
With his background in plant growth regulators and herbicides, Pilon teams with OHP senior technical manager Dr. Carlos Bográn, who specializes in insecticides and fungicides, to comprise the OHP technical staff.
A frequent speaker at industry events including Cultivate and Farwest, Pilonbegan his career as a grower at Neal Mast and Son Greenhouses in Grand Rapids, MI and later served as head grower at Sawyer Nursery in Hudsonville, MI. He holds a bachelor’s degree in horticulture from Michigan State University.
