After nearly 7 years of leading the business, Kevin Doran is moving to the Longvine Growing Co Board of Directors, vacating the CEO position. Over the past several weeks the Board of Directors have worked to realign executive and senior management responsibilities.
The board of directors name Company CFO Chris Brocklesby as President of Longvine Growing Co. Chris has 13 years of finance and greenhouse management experience, working with several companies within the industry.
Along with the appointment of a new president, Mike Reed has been named the Chief Commercial Officer and Linton Clarke the Chief Technology Officer.
With this leadership foundation in place, Longvine is committed to being a supplier of choice for customers, through service levels underpinned by the efforts of the team and volume growth, supported by their partners at Equilibrium Capital. "Equilibrium has and will continue to make investments in Longvine Growing Co from our funds to meet the needs of retailers for years to come,” says Dave Chen, Chairman and CEO of Equilibrium Capital. Equilibrium recently announced the final close of its second fund dedicated to indoor agriculture, the Controlled Environment Foods Fund II, with total capital commitments of $1.02 billion.
