Revol Greens Adds Key Leadership Roles

Amanda Crews and Kathy Flores

Owatonna, Minnesota-based Revol Greens has hired Kathy Flores as chief of staff and Amanda Crews as VP of people (human resources). Both bring decades of experience and proven results to the company. 

“I admire their impressive backgrounds and the impact they will make within our rapidly growing organization,” said Michael Wainscott, Revol Greens CEO. “We’ve hand-selected the best-of-the-best to guide our company forward. Kathy is tenured in the leadership within the agribusiness industry, and Amanda has a strong reputation for recruiting and retaining employees.”

Joining Revol Greens from Benson Hill, Flores knows the fresh food industry well. She specializes in team development and has a broad range of experience. She successfully led acquisition integrations, launched new business units and managed teams to execute specialty end-to-end supply chains from post-research and development through end-use customer products. Prior to Benson Hill, Flores was with Perdue AgriBusiness. 

“I’m honored to lead the financial, operational and administrative departments that support the company as it continues to grow,” Flores said. “Revol Greens is a pioneer in the CEA industry and is at a pivotal point to become part of its history.”

Flores is joined on the executive team by Crews, bringing expertise in addressing and supporting the right infrastructure to support growth. Crews has helped companies strengthen their organizational structure, ensure compliance, establish productive and fulfilling work environments as well as building out candidate pipelines.

Most recently at U.S. Foods, her understanding of the complexities of food distribution will guide Revol Greens as it continues to expand its enterprise. In addition to her time at U.S. Foods, Crews worked in-house, both at corporate entities and for the state of Texas. 

With locations in California, Georgia, Minnesota and Texas, Revol Greens harvests and delivers its packaged lettuce products within one day, resulting in a shelf life four to six days longer than out-of-state greens.

Revol Greens adopts the most advanced greenhouse technology and growing methods in the industry, including facilities that use 90 percent less water than traditional field-grown greens, irrigation from UV-sterilized water and sustainable sunlight. Grown clean and green in an animal and pest-free environment, no pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals are used in the process. Revol Greens grows 20 million pounds of non-GMO lettuces annually.
