Inside Sales and Marketing
Sarah Waldman grew up in a horticulture family in St. Louis and joined TALLER in 2015. She studied at the University of MO-Kansas City and worked successfully as a sales rep in Chicago and then in Denver, where she currently lives.
Our founder, Jim Beckmann, began our company in 1993 after owning and operating a garden center and distribution business for over 30 years. Jim’s solid reputation in the industry helped to forge a relationship with Premier Tech Horticulture, which we carry on to this day. Representing their core product, Pro-Mix® growing media, has led us to long-standing relationships with growers and greenhouse owners. We understand their challenges and our mission is to bring them solutions. This philosophy has broadened both our product lines and geography over the past 26 years.
