POELDIJK, Netherlands: Dutch alstroemeria grower Together2Grow is pleased to announce the appointment of Robin van der Knaap to its Board of Directors.
Robin van der Knaap and Together2Grow are no stranger to one and another. Van der Knaap joined the company in 2010 where over the past 10 years he worked on developing key accounts and creating strategies to expand markets.
