Chris L.

Accounting

“The constant at Nature Fresh Farms is growth.”

Chris L. grew up in Kingsville, ON, went to the University of Windsor for school, and attained his CPA certification before dabbling in the banking sector. After a while, Chris started working as a Controller in the Finance department for a few different businesses. Looking for an even greater challenge, in 2019, Chris joined our Finance team as a Senior Controller based in Leamington, ON!

Working with numbers has always made sense to Chris: “I think I was wired for this kind of work. Finance always intrigued me, and when I was in school, I discovered I had a knack for Accounting, as well. The two go hand in hand, so pursuing my CPA certification – one of my defining moments – was an obvious next step for me.”

He may be a newer addition to the Nature Fresh Farms family, but Chris has thoroughly enjoyed meeting our team and learning about greenhouse farming: “I like the people here – everyone is very understanding, helpful, and patient, including our leadership team. I also find the greenhouse business to be exciting – everywhere you look, there is constant growth, expansion, and buying and selling happening.”

With a soon-to-be high school graduate looking at post-secondary schools, and golf games spent on our local courses whenever he can, the rest of 2019 is shaping up to be pretty jam-packed for Chris and his family!

As a Senior Controller at Nature Fresh Farms, Chris helps to ensure our Senior Management team is kept up-to-date on our financial situation and that controls are in place to protect our company’s assets – that way, our leaders can focus on day-to-date operations and meeting the needs of their employees! Chris is one of our #GrowToPeople.
