 JEREMY CORRAO

VP OF GROWGENERATION
MANAGEMENT CORP.

Although cultivating has been a lifelong passion, Jeremy’s professional career started in 2004 when he and his wife opened a hydroponics retail store. With 6 years of prior cultivating experience and knowledge to offer their customers, the store was a success. It was bought out by a competitor that went on to build the largest hydroponics store on the East Coast. The company was acquired by GrowGeneration in 2018 and Jeremy became Vice President of GrowGeneration Management Corp. Jeremy’s vast experience, allows him to confidently consult in: facility designs (lighting, table layout, irrigation, facility work flow, HVAC, building management systems), advising on cultivation techniques, properly forecasting budget needs, and managing a team of knowledgeable staff across the country. Jeremy has worked on over 500,000 square feet of canopy space.

Jeremy lives his life as stated by A.J. Darkholme, “always hear others out and remain open-minded; the day you think you know everything is the day
