Hailey Ashbee joined the Kam’s team as a technical sales representative in January 2021. Hailey is a masters of environmental science graduate (University of Guelph, 2019) with a focus on entomology and has since been busy working with some notable Niagara growers doing integrated pest management. Hailey will primarily cover the Niagara region.

Steve Droog, a Kam’s sales rep since 2009, will maintain selected accounts in Niagara that he has cultivated through the years but will transition others to Hailey. Steve’s role will be expanded into the nursery market sector, providing sales support to most of the Ontario nursery accounts.

Serge Leclair will focus on existing and new Quebec customers. Serge continues to grow the Quebec territory offering comprehensive support on the use of bios, fertilizer, plant growth regulators and crop protection products. Serge will still be involved with the nursery industry and continue his work with Landscape Ontario and selected nursery accounts in Ontario.
