Territory Account Manager, Eastern Canada and UScurtis@vanbelle.com
Curtis Friesen began his journey with Van Belle Nursery in September of 2004 as he hopped on a plane and spent his first three weeks on the road visiting customers with Bill Van Belle in Eastern Canada. Since then he has enjoyed working with many current customers as well as forming new partnerships throughout Eastern Canada. He has also been influential in developing alliances throughout the Eastern and Southern US, an area which has really expanded over the past five years.
Curtis spends a lot of his time at our Clayburn facility working closely with Diego Martinez and our Young Plants Production Team and can often be found having a final look before the plants head off to our customers or checking the crops putting on roots in the Cravo.
“Getting out and walking each crop to me is very important. I know how much my customers rely on me for accurate feedback and it really helps me sleep well, knowing that our production team has selected strong and consistent liners. Watching our own containers growing, I am able to see immediately how important it is to start with a top grade liner!”
Curtis and his wife Michelle have been blessed with two beautiful girls.
