Originally from Australia, Ash has a love for watching things grow, whether that be a seedling breaking through the soil’s surface or a business taking flight. His initial business pursuits as a grower soon led to a role as Managing Director for horticultural company NEEm Coir Pty. Ltd. He found that business suited him, and left to pursue opportunities in the bedding industry, where he served as Managing Director of two multi-million dollar enterprises, Craftmatic Australia Pty, Ltd. and later Medico Japan. Missing the garden, he headed to America to co-found Rock Nutrients, a division of a SIngapore-based group. Under his leadership as Managing Director, the business grew in five years’ time to a multimillion dollar enterprise with an international presence. His work in commercial growing has become his greatest passion, and he spends therapeutic time in the garden when he’s not out surfing or playing sports.
