Valley View, OH (December 1, 2021) - Greenhouse Management and Nursery Management are pleased to open nominations for the Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards (HILA) class of 2022. Each year, the GIE Horticulture Group, with the support of Syngenta, honors six exceptional leaders from the greenhouse and nursery industries. HILA is the only North American awards program to recognize recipients’ exemplary contributions to the horticulture industry, such as:

  • contributing to its development with their innovation and expertise
  • excelling in environmental stewardship
  • enhancing the lives of employees, customers, communities, and the industry at large with their charitable giving
  • making a positive impact on the industry

“The green industry is full of considerate and compassionate people who care deeply for their employees, their community and their colleagues,” says Kelli Rodda, editorial director. “It’s a tremendous privilege to not only honor these industry leaders, but to learn and share their stories each year.”

“The HILAs provide a perfect opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of extraordinary individuals in our industry” says Nick Collins, publisher. “We want to thank our long-time sponsor, Syngenta, for their continued support in helping bring the HILAs to the greenhouse and nursery markets.”

The winners will be awarded during the HILA reception at Cultivate’22 in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday, July 17, 2022. The deadline for nominations is March 18, 2022 and can be submitted at
