Our goals are to develop quality relationships with our customers, growers and carriers; provide high quality plant material at competitive prices; take care of all of the logistics for our customers and growers; and begin the process of linking the gap between the design field and the nursery and growing industries.
While studying landscape architecture, Stefan was introduced to the horticultural side of the industry; he quickly fell in love with plant diversity. In his early 20s Stefan joined a re-wholesale nursery and immersed himself in every aspect of the nursery business.
His experience with several Colorado nurseries allowed him to build new logistics systems, create improved sale tactics and to organize practices to reduce labor costs.
In 2011, he started Plantivity. The business has thrived due to Stefan and Katy’s philosophy of being “rooted in your success.” Stefan oversees every aspect of the nursery brokerage by meeting with growers to understand their changing market and using technology to bring innovation and foresight to the industry. He never forgets the personal touch and is out personally tagging trees and sending photos to his customers to ensure good quality control.
When not at work, Stefan can be found on Colorado’s bike trails and ski slopes with his family.
