Alex Fisher – Founder and CEO
Alex has driven the Saturn Grower technology from initial experiments through to market ready product over the last 6 years.
He has significant experience in all aspects of the technology and its application in the commercial growing market place.
He is working with some of the UK’s leading horticultural crop growers, processors, industry figures and researchers, as well as with commercial partners in international markets.
Alex has overall responsibility for the direction of the company but remains involved with all customers at both sales and support levels.
Alex is a food and drink lover and in the tiny amounts of spare time he has will usually be found gorging on something almost as delicious as a Saturn Grower strawberry.
Alice Hutchings – Sales and Support
Joining the company in 2013, Alice spent two years investigating and testing the Saturn Grower,
improving and modifying it before bringing the system out of the realms of research into commercialisation.
This created the job she now holds leading the operations and support where she not only keeps the research and commercial worlds in touch but also lends some glamour to an otherwise muddy business!
Fortunately for our customers, Alice is the one they see lots of, taking care of their every need.
Having come from years as a marine scientist and diver, she can still often be found sixty foot down explaining the finer points of pak choi growth to the sharks!
Arnoud Witteveen – Research and Development
Arnoud joined the company in 2015, to take forward the R&D with a particular focus on nutrient
recipes, irrigation and fertigation strategies and the overall interaction between all the controllable variables in the Saturn Grower system.
His work targets improvements in crop yields and quality, including colour, flavour and shelf-life.
Qualified as a plant breeder, he has a profound understanding of plants right down to a genetic level, heralding from the finest pedigree in the horticultural world, Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
Arnoud likes plants so he can only be found in our research greenhouses, usually engaged in deep conversation with something green and leafy.
