A SUSTAINABLE ENTERPRISE by Casey Houweling
Wed, May 31, 2017, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM PDT
Malibu Finest Networking proudly presents to you our Keynote Speaker: CASEY HOUWELING.
Casey Houweling is a visionary. From the time he was a small boy pruning and picking his father’s vegetables, Casey has known what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to be a farmer, but not a traditional one. Now in his 50’s, he heads one of the most technically-advanced and environmentally-friendly greenhouse operations in the world.
In a world where companies expand through broad and sometimes reckless diversification, Casey believes in specializing in one business – greenhouse tomatoes. The specialist philosophy isn’t new; it’s quite simple, really. He believes that focus and attention to one category (tomatoes) versus an array of fruits and vegetables is critical to enhancing one’s know-how. Ultimately, know-how and passion are the keys to quality.
Though he always knew his vocational calling, Casey Houweling never gave much thought to life beyond the greenhouse until he met his future wife. Today, Casey enjoys another house; this one isn’t made of glass. It is the loving home of Casey, wife Linda and daughters Rebecca, Monica and April.
