Meet the team

Ken Klopp

Business Development

Ken is a successful and driven sales and marketing professional with more than 23 years of service in the green industry. His entrepreneurial spirit and zeal for providing value driven solutions has benefited growers, retail, and businesses alike. Two words can sum up Ken’s business success: Relationships and Value. He networks for business but is passionate about getting to know people on a personal level. Ken says, “There is more to life than just work. Although I find work enjoyable, getting to know people and their life story makes work fulfilling.”

He also has to see value in what he offers clients. “There needs to be inherent value in the products and solutions we provide customers. This isn’t about selling another widget. My ultimate goal is to help businesses and people succeed; to serve people and solve problems others haven’t been able to,” says Klopp. This authenticity and mindset are what continue to drive Ken into bringing new solutions to the industry.

When Ken’s not working, he can be found spending time with his wife, raising their three children, being a foster parent, and helping his teenage son with a lawn care business. Ken and his family reside in Fort Collins, CO and enjoy serving the community as well as camping and hiking the beautiful mountains.

Jon Tewes

Front-End Developer / Designer

Jon’s interest in web development was sparked from his love of design and his entrepreneurial spirit. After his first computer programming class he was hooked but still needed a creative outlet. Jon attended the University of Nebraska in the Fine Arts department where he honed his digital design skills and merged his love of design with development. As the front-end developer for the Marketing Garden, Jon brings over 15 years of experience delivering innovative user interfaces. His creative passion is continuously driven by a desire to learn and implement new ideas and technology whenever possible.

When not at the Marketing Garden, Jon spends time with his amazing wife, Ruth and their two children Jack and Maddy. You can find him working around the house, playing with the kids, out on the golf course or cheering for his Huskers each Saturday in the fall. Meanwhile, whether he is working or playing, Jon is seeking the Lord, Jesus Christ, and trying to glorify Him with his life.

Chuck Larson

Senior API Engineer/Linux Administrator

The extent of what Chuck wanted to share about himself is that he’s a software engineer. …he’s pretty humble. Fortunately we maintain the website so the opportunity to brag on him a little bit is our privilege.

Chuck is a genius. Pure and simple. He is the best in the business and brings more than 20 years of experience with backend development. He took the “back of a napkin” concept of The Perfect Plant and built a robust, flexible, customizable and easy to use system that is being used all over the United States and even internationally. He is amazing at what he does and we are so thankful to have him as part of the team.
