PHILIPS LIGHTING
Philips Lighting announced the addition of two staff members to its Horticulture LED Solutions business unit in North America. Ries Neuteboom and Jan Chechalk both focus on high-wire fruits and vegetable food crops as part of the North America support team. Ries is working as Key Account Manager and Jan as Plant Specialist in tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.

Ries has worked at Philips Lighting since 2013, where he was Key Account Manager for the Benelux region of Philips Lighting Horticulture. In his new duties, he’s responsible for western North America.

Jan comes to Philips Lighting with extensive experience in vegetative crops, working at both Amco (tomatoes) and W Martens Greenhouses (high-wire and traditional cucumbers) in his native Ontario, Canada. He’s also worked in ornamental crop production at the Ontario greenhouse firms Lakeshore, Bayview and Cederway Floral.
