Cultivatd has hired UK-based Adam Abadi to focus on unique business opportunities.
After recruiting Kyle Barnett as Director of Sales & Partnerships and former Forbes 30 under 30 to lead their strategic growth, Cultivatd Inc, announces recent hire Adam Abadi as their new Business Development Manager who will focus on growing unique sales channels and lead large corporate accounts.
Adam has worked for several indoor farm startups in varying capacities. From a Grower at Infarm to Growth Manager at Crate to Plate, his in-field experience and passion for people have contributed to his industry success.
As a Production Grower Adam said he “learned key hydroponic horticultural skills, as well as, an understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with operating a commercial vertical farm.” As a Growth Manager Adam relied on his horticultural expertise to help Crate to Plate significantly grow their sales by signing on many new clients including Michelin Star restaurants.
