“The constant at NatureFresh™ 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 NatureFresh™ 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 NatureFresh™ 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.
