When David Porterfield, AIFD, started working in his family’s flower shop, he loved the creative energy. But today, after several decades in business, he realizes that the most special aspects of floral service are the personal relationships and getting to witness the effects that flowers have. “Being with people at really meaningful times in their lives has become a lot more satisfying,” he relates.
Joining President Tom Figueroa, Alan Tanouye of Floralife was elected First Vice President. New Board members include Tim Dewey of Delaware Valley Floral Group, Tom Logue of Pennock, and Rob Shibata of Mt. Eden Floral.
