MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN ANNOUNCES PROMOTIONS

 

(ST. LOUIS):  The Missouri Botanical Garden recently announced the promotions of Andrew Wyatt to Senior Vice President Horticulture & Living Collections and Vickie Campbell to Senior Director, Operations.

Wyatt joined the Garden’s staff in 2011 as Vice President of Horticulture & Living Collections. Andrew leads a staff of more than 60 horticulturists who maintain the Garden’s 79 acres. He spearheaded the Garden’s effort to increase wild-source plants in the Garden by 1400%, protecting plants that are threatened or near extinction.  He led the development of a web-based Living Collections Management System from conception to implementation in 18 months. This technology allows every plant and associated data including location, growing condition and threat level to be monitored in real time. He was a member of the St. Louis Business Journal’s 40 under 40 class of 2016.

Campbell served as Director of the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House from 2011 until her promotion. She spent 35 years in a variety of marketing and sales roles for Busch Entertainment prior to joining the Garden’s staff. In her new role, Campbell will continue to oversee the Butterfly House as well as the Little Shop Around the Corner. She’ll also be responsible for operation of other Garden-owned properties and for the development of marketing and sales plans for Shaw Nature Reserve.
