Chief Executive Officer, Plant Impact
John began his career working with venture-financed technology businesses in the San Francisco Bay area during the “first” internet boom of the late 1990s. Since then he has been lucky enough to join the agricultural technology industry and lead business growth in both multinational and early-stage companies.
Since joining Plant Impact in 2011, he has been working to build a culture which combines the entrepreneurial agility of smaller companies in industries such as software or biotechnology, with the management discipline of global enterprises in our own agricultural sector. For John this is the joy and challenge of commercialising new technology: the need to move quickly and ambitiously toward a vision, whilst remaining focused to carefully manage our precious resources.
Plant Impact are collectively committed to building a global leader in crop enhancement technology, one that is based on the enduring values of expert science and straightforward business practices.
