Meet Bob Vingelen
Meet Bob Vingelen, a valued member of our business development, sales, and field team at Pree. He joined our ranks in October of 2018, shortly after we opened our doors for business.
Bob has always been passionate about growing plants of all types. He graduated from OSU in 2004 with a bachelor of science degree in horticulture, and prior to joining Pree, he was the head gardener at Corvallis Country Club. This guy knows plants, plus he has experience as a lab technician to boot, making him a perfect fit for a cannabis lab.
Bob believes that cannabis has infinite medicinal values. He has dabbled with growing since the 90’s and has been a care provider since 2001. About his experience in the industry over the last few years, he says:
It’s been an honor working for Pree and servicing our amazing partners. It’s humbling to see the talent and quality of cannabis being grown here in Oregon — the best in the world in my opinion! It’s a privilege to be a part of the Oregon cannabis industry, getting to work with such awesome coworkers and clients.
Bob has plenty to keep him occupied outside his work in the field. He’s interested in art and music, and he moonlights as a potter, creating hand-thrown musical instruments (drums) and other utilitarian vessels. Bob likes sports and getting out into nature, and he values spending time with his family and his dog Fargo.
