“If you’ve had the pleasure of working with Daniel, you can immediately see why he was selected for this great honor,” said Jennifer Neujahr, director of horticulture business. “He has been integral in the success that we’ve had in developing HydraFiber. His drive, passion and expertise has led and will continue to lead the horticulture industry down great roads in the future.”
Norden’s accomplishments include his role in helping to commercialize wood fiber substrates through research and development and education, especially most recently with his instrumental work in the launch and adaptation of HydraFiber in the industry.
In his current role, Norden works as the liaison for growers and the research and development team.
