Eli Riddle, President of Progressive Packaging Group, grew up in an agricultural family in El Centro, California. With a love of the outdoors and a reverence for a hard day’s work, Eli sought out a career that would keep him in the same field. He went on to graduate with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Butte College, and then later returned to school, graduating from Chico State University in 2002.

The early years of Eli’s career were spent working in the greenhouse industry. He then later relocated to Salinas where he started in Agricultural Packaging. It was in 2008 that he helped found PPG with Barry and Kathy, becoming the President in 2016.
