For several weeks already, Peter Kollen has been active as Account Manager at The Rootstock Company (TRC). In this role, Peter mainly focuses on the High-Tech tomato market in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, and German-speaking countries. Together with Arnoud Roozen, Ronald Visser, and Simon van Zanten, Peter now forms the commercial team at TRC.
“With commercial activities within 30 countries, expanding the commercial team was highly desirable’’, says Arnoud Roozen, Commercial Manager at TRC. “The experience which Peter has gained at BASF-Nunhems and Grodan will help us tremendously to further accelerate our growth’’.

In the meantime, Peter finished his training period and is still very pleased with this next step in his career: “Food horticulture is a great sector to work in”, knows Peter. “And a commercial position at an ambitious and fast-growing vegetable breeding company fits in perfectly with my own motivations and development”, he concludes.
TRC is a vegetable seed company that fully specializes in rootstock seeds. In addition to various rootstock varieties for tomatoes, the company also offers rootstock varieties for all other graftable vegetables, such as cucumber, pepper, and watermelon.
