Matt Hutchins joined the Millcreek team in the Spring of 2015. He learned about Millcreek by watching a live tv segment with Tom Wood of NBC4 in Columbus on an early Saturday morning. He began working in the Quart Perennial Department where he pulled orders. In the summer he was promoted to Section Grower of Annuals, Succulents, and Specialty Crops. The specialty crops quickly became focused on Annuals, which Matt had previous experience growing.
Since Matt has joined the team their Annual and Succulent lines have doubled in sales. He has played a key role in expanding the product line-up from originally growing only 4.5″ annuals to now offering 3.5″, 6″, 12″ hanging baskets, and 12″ Decorative finished annual planters. He has also contributed to the expansion of Succulents into the 2″ and 3.5″ offerings and he continues to find unique and cool additions to the company's line-up.
In 2018 they added a line of Shrubs to the Millcreek portfolio under Matt’s care. His many years of experience in the Landscape industry greatly helped influence and fine tune Millcreek's product offering. He has a keen eye for design and regularly creates the plant oasis they have at their Spring Seminar, displays for the Open Houses, and updates the front planter each season that greets visitors upon their arrival at the Office.
Outside of work Matt enjoys watching sports and working in his yard.
