Rougemont, NC (May 29, 2015) — GPN (Greenhouse Product News), a leading business publication for horticulture professionals, recently named Magan Agee, Director of Sales for Hoffman Nursery, Inc. as an honoree in its 40 Under 40 Class of 2015.

Class members were nominated by their horticulture/floriculture industry peers, based on personal and professional accomplishments. Magan Agee is one of 40 trailblazers under the age of 40 who exemplifies superior leadership, creativity, innovative thinking and accomplishments in and outside the horticulture field.

“The 40 individuals in this year’s class represent all facets of horticulture, but they all have one thing in common,” says GPN Editorial Director Tim Hodson. “They are the pioneers for the future of our industry.”

In addition to her work accomplishments, Magan is also active in the community. She’s a member and volunteer of the Roxboro Jaycees (Junior Chamber) chapter and plays on a local softball team.
