Our People

Davood has been working with Westbrook since 2013. He quickly became a key member of our growing team and brings a wealth of experience and incredible dedication to our greenhouses. Davood had already developed an extensive background in agriculture before immigrating to Canada in 2009, having graduated with an agricultural engineering degree from the Isfahan University of Technology in 1991 and worked in industrial sugar cane production for the following 18 years. This experience shines through in the incredible commitment, thoughtful problem-solving, and diligent attention to detail that Davood brings to our team.

“Working at Westbrook has been a rewarding and beneficial experience for both my personal and career growth. Before joining Westbrook, I experienced many different work environments – but at Westbrook I have truly come to understand the meaning of working in a friendly, detail-focused, and innovative work environment.”
