AmericanHort and the Horticultural Research Institute (HRI) are committed to helping green industry businesses perform better, grow faster, and prepare for the future. A healthy and robust industry is one with connected leaders that have a positive impact on their businesses, their industry, and their communities.

Partnering together, AmericanHort and HRI have created the HRI Leadership Academy, an advanced program designed for rapid leadership development and real-world results. Strong leaders and strong ongoing leadership development are mission critical for green industry businesses.

Managed through HRI and generously supported by AmericanHort, the HRI Leadership Academy addresses the industry’s need for a leadership development program that serves both current and future leaders through training, coaching, and access to a growing network of industry leaders.
