December 17, 2020  By Greenhouse Canada

Back in January 2017, Kam’s Growers Supply hung a shingle at 39 South Talbot Road, Cottam, southwestern, Ont. Since that time, Kam’s has been growing, providing fertilizer, crop protection products and services to growers in the Kingsville/Leamington area.

This fall, Melissa Mclean joined Kam’s Kingsville as a technical sales representative.

“Given Melissa’s horticultural experience and IPM expertise, she is a great addition to the Kam’s team,” says Julie Fordyce, operations and marketing manager at Kam’s Growers Supply Inc.


Other changes at Kam’s Kingsville include the role development of Jamie Prior to Kingsville operations manager.

“The whole Kam’s team is very enthusiastic about having Jamie lead the development and operations of the Kingsville outlet,” says Fordyce. “Jamie started with Kam’s as a sales rep over a year ago and has proven to be a great fit and asset to the company.”

“Kam’s Growers Supply is committed to growing and investing in the business in Kingsville/Leamington,” continues Fordyce. “Hiring wins such as Melissa and Jamie are part of this commitment.”

Another recent addition to the team is Kierryn Keeton, who was brought on as an agronomist on Dec.7. She has a Masters of Science from Rhodes University, SA., and previously worked at Sundays River Citrus Company as a senior agronomist.

“Kierryn has amassed the agronomic expertise, skills and ability to work with growers to optimize crop quality and yield,” says Fordyce. “[She] will provide Kam’s customers with solid agronomic support: making recommendations on crop protection, IPM strategies, fertility, water, tissue and sap testing. Her research skills and experience set her up to successfully conduct and oversee product trials.”

“Kam’s is excited to have Kierryn fulfilling this new role where she will work closely with the sales reps, elevating the Kam’s customer service offering.”
