Meet The Team
We are a team of thinkers, problem-solvers, innovators, and dreamers. We are North America’s largest tomato grower because of our dedicated and passionate people. Here’s a glance at the people who make Lipman Family Farms a great team to work with.
Meet Our Leaders
Chief Executive Officer
“Lipman is Good From the Ground Up, because our people are. It all begins with people…from the commitment of the Lipman family shareholders through everyone in the company. We are a successful company because our people care for each other, our customers and our communities.”
Chief Strategy Officer
“To me, at Lipman, we think of inventiveness and innovation as a mindset. The way we speak here is to work towards a growth mindset, to constantly look at challenges as an opportunity to adapt and try something new.”
Chief Farming Officer
“Good from the ground up means that we don’t take short cuts, we’re in it for the long-haul. We own the land, we’re good stewards of the land, and make decisions that are not just good for tomorrow but good for 20-30 years from now.”
Director of Food Safety
“Everything that we grow, pack, and distribute, our families eat, our employees eat and their families eat. That’s why food safety is such a critical part to our business, and we only get one chance to get it right.”
Chief Admin Officer
“Whether it’s inspirational or aspirational, we really rally behind the mindset that what we do isn’t just day to day work, but has real implications on society. We get to feed North America.”
“Food is family. And we’re a food company, so it only makes sense that we act as a family here.”
Chief Financial Officer
“The value of appreciation, encouraging people to succeed, and also appreciating the community and being good stewards of the land – that’s what being good from the ground up means to me.”
Director of Community Relations
“It’s important to us to be sustainable in our community by giving back to that community in which we operate and live.”
Chief Operating Officer
“What makes me most proud is our ability to provide fresh, flavorful produce to consumers’ plates across the country on a daily basis.”

Lipman’s Accelerator Program
Technological advancements have the potential to change the way the world grows and distributes fresh food. At Lipman, instead of trying to predict what the future might bring, we aim to shape it.
The Accelerator Program explores how new technologies can improve our production operations and ensure the sustainability and longevity of Lipman’s and the agriculture industry’s success.
The program focuses on identifying new technologies and other solutions to improve quality and productivity across the supply chain. As a cross-functional team, the Accelerator also invites novel ideas and work to foster a culture of innovation at Lipman from the ground up.
