Eric Hopkins enriches farming industry with leadership
Farming successfully in Florida today requires much more than cooperative weather and a bountiful harvest. As senior vice president and part owner of Hundley Farms, Eric Hopkins knows it also takes teamwork, strong leadership, business smarts and a commitment to hard work.
After 26 years with the Palm Beach County business, Hopkins’ dedication has evolved into a satisfying career and a positive reputation through his leadership roles in the state’s agriculture industry.
“I’m not afraid to voice my opinions, but I’m also interested and open to other people’s opinions and viewpoints,” Hopkins said. “I’m always willing to learn.” His leadership goals are to be “honest, dependable, engaged, friendly and a consensus builder.”
Others in the state’s farming community recognize those qualities in Hopkins.
