Clive V. Olson
Olson's Greenhouses, Raynham, Mass.
Opened Olson's Garden Center in Wareham, Mass., when he was 14 years old; Besides Olson's Greenhouses and Olson's Garden Center, Clive is also a partner in Lovely Day Gardens, Klein Greenhouse and Cup 2 Cafe.
Can't live without: Family and friends, "and when they drive me crazy, I can't live without an ice cold martini." Favorite cuisine: Italian, "but I'll pretty much eat anything with melted cheese on it."
His greatest personal accomplishment: At age 28, Clive and his business partner Matt Piscitelli, bought Olson's Greenhouses from his dad, Clive H. Olson. This provided "a smooth transition to enjoy his retirement."
