GRO CEO Garret HergertGarret Hergert, CEO of GRO in Vancouver, truly embodies his company’s mission statement to “create amazing living spaces to build better lives for our clients, team members and community.” Hergert sets himself apart not just through GRO’s services, but also by being active in government affairs and giving back to the community.

“Garret not only supports the BIA and its aim to protect and promote the building industry, but he also advocates for his community,” said Sarah Hannon- Nein, Communications and Program Education Manager for the Building Industry Association of Clark County (BIACC).

A member of the BIACC for 14 years with service on their board of directors, Hergert has generously contributed to the success of BIACC’s Political Action Committee and scholarship fundraising efforts.

GRO Parade of Homes 2022

GRO is the new title sponsor for BIACC’s 2022 Parade of Homes. The GRO Parade of Homes takes place in Ridgefield, where the company has a rich history. The company will be landscaping homes involved with the parade as well as providing landscaping materials and supplies for the homes.

“GRO has been involved with the parade for more than 15 years, so it only made sense for us to step up our involvement and become the new title sponsor,” Hergert said.

The GRO Parade of Homes is an annual showcase of elegant custom homes in Southwest Washington, highlighting the best in home design, luxurious amenities, new technology, outdoor living, and imaginative use of space. The event ran from Sept. 9–25.

“We couldn’t be prouder to have a company like GRO as our title sponsor for this year’s Parade of Homes,” Hannon-Nein said. “We thank GRO for all they do for the building industry and our community.”
