Effective Feb.1, Glenn Wong, vice-president of marketing for Vancouver-based Nabob Canada, will become president and chief executive officer of the Western Greenhouse Growers’ Co-operative.

Nabob has yet to name a replacement.

The 13-year-old co-op, based in Surry, b.c., markets hydroponically grown tomatoes, cucumbers and green peppers under the brand name B. C. Hothouse.

Wong says the co-op’s primary market is b.c., but adds it has been expanding its distribution across North America for the last several years.

He says it has begun setting its sights on markets in Asia. PA
