Dennis Gardemeyer, Chief Executive Officer

After graduating with an MBA from Sacramento State University, Dennis spent many years as a developer/builder, primarily in northern California. Several years ago he shifted his focus from the construction industry to agricultural-related companies, Delta Blue Grass among them. When not at work, Dennis enjoys spending time in his woodshop, boating, and fly fishing.

Ed Zuckerman, Director

Having spent his formative years in northern California, Ed has partnered with Dennis Gardemeyer on a variety of farming operations. He was raised in the Stockton area (where Delta Bluegrass and other farming operations are located), and still resides there today. When he's not busy running his many enterprises, he enjoys getting out into nature, and is a world class snow skier.

Geoff has over 35 years of experience in the building products industry, with nearly 20 of those years spent as either CFO or Controller. He's worked at headquarters and field operations for companies of all sizes, and has been our CFO here at Heritage One since the very start. In his free time he enjoys hiking and mountain biking. 

John Ballou, Sales Manager

With over 25 years experience as a door and millwork salesman, John was a perfect fit to take on our Sales Manager role. His breadth of knowledge about door and millwork products has made him one of the most knowledgeable people in our industry, and we're proud that he's also a partner in Heritage One. In his free time he enjoys visiting the race circuit, where his son is a successful Sprint car driver.

In her spare time, Diane enjoys golf and traveling to new places.
