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
“As a fourth-generation family-owned company, we know how to adapt and innovate. The Lipman Way is to have a growth mindset, where we see challenges as opportunities to work together and try new things to ultimately provide the most regenerative, reliable produce. As a team, we’re growing for today, tomorrow, and for generations to come, from our family farms to your family table.”
Chief Operating 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.”
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.”
President of Value Added Services
“What makes me most proud is our ability to provide fresh, flavorful produce to consumers’ plates across the country on a daily basis.”
President of Farming
“Farming is and always has been about being sustainable. Our farmers are some of the most innovative people because of their knack to always be practicing. We need to be regenerative in order to grow for generations to come.”

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.
