urban-gro has appointed Sonia Lo to the Company’s Board of Directors.
"Sonia brings experience as a leader in the CEA industry, which will be invaluable as we continue to expand our presence globally to new markets and crop types," said Bradley Nattrass, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of urban-gro.
Ms. Lo brings over two decades of combined agriculture, technology, and business experience to urban-gro. Most recently, Ms. Lo was CEO of Sensei Ag – Larry Ellison and Dr. David Agus’ AgTech venture in indoor farming. During her tenure, she led the acquisition of several farms across North America of varying technology types. Prior to that, Ms. Lo was CEO of Crop One Holdings, Inc., a vertical farming company that owns FreshBoxFarms in Millis, MA, and a joint venture with Emirates Flight Catering in Dubai. She is the only woman to serve as CEO of a major vertical farming company. Ms. Lo has a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Stanford University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
"I am excited to join the urban-gro board and bring my experience in growing food with CEA technologies to bear on their growth and strategy. Achieving optimal unit-level economics is critical in the CEA space, particularly in food, given the capital requirements," said Ms. Lo.
