Frands Jepsen, owner of the company Knud Jepsen A/S in Denmark, has been awarded the title of ‘Green Entrepreneur of the Year 2015’ during the first edition of the Green Inspiration Event ‘Pot and Bedding Plant Industry’. Last month, the jury of six members went in search of the best pot and/or bedding plant grower in the world.
The jury firmly believed that Jepsen should be the winner: Five of the six jury members chose him as the most inspiring entrepreneur in the international pot and bedding plant industry. The jury praised, for instance, Jepsen’s clear vision, mission and ambitions. “Professional marketing with a clear branding strategy under the Queen umbrella. A focus on the customer is the guiding principle and is well implemented in the business processes. Jepsen always keeps the end customer in mind and furthermore a close collaboration with retailers guarantees a higher turnover thanks to the Queen concept”, were some of the opinions of the jury.
