Moreover, the company added to its all-star team by creating six new positions designed to enhance and manage the company’s exponential growth. TerraSmart’s commitment to ensuring a pipeline of internally trained and dedicated professionals led the company to hire the following new team members:

● Jennifer Degtjarewsky, Marketing Director
