Bill Watson and Andrea Nelson join Griffin sales team

Griffin announces two new additions to its sales team. Bill Watson joins Griffin as a Sales Representative serving southern Texas and all of Colorado. Andrea Nelson has been hired as a Sales Representative in the upper Midwest, calling primarily on accounts in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Both Watson and Nelson will focus on sales and support of Griffin’s live-goods products, including seed, cuttings and young plants.

Watson is a 30-year veteran of the horticulture industry. His extensive experience includes roles in production, marketing and sales. Most recently, Bill served as President and Director of Sales and Marketing with Grimes Horticulture.

Watson holds a bachelor’s degree in plant science from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

He is field-based and may be reached by e-mail at or by phone at 720.880.8928.

Nelson comes to Griffin with an impressive background both in the industry and beyond. She holds a bachelor’s degree in horticulture from Auburn University, and has worked as a research assistant and, most recently, as a grower for Natural Beauty Growers in Denmark, Wis.

Away from the greenhouse, Nelson is a second lieutenant and platoon leader with the Wisconsin Army National Guard; her service includes a one-year tour of duty in Baghdad, Iraq, as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

She is based in Wisconsin and can be reached by e-mail at or by phone at 920.606.6998.

“Both Bill and Andrea share Griffin’s focus on customer success, and know first-hand what it takes for growers and retailers to thrive,” said Brian Sullivan, Director of Sales for Griffin. “We have every confidence that their knowledge and real-world experience will be valuable assets to our customers.”
