Regional Retail Manager & Nursery Purchasing Manager
From riding a bike to go and water plants, to purchasing plant material for two Garden Centers and a Landscape Division, I have been in the business of Stuarts Landscaping and Garden Centers for over 25 years. I have been on landscaping crews, managed the Maintenance Division, and currently manage the Fond du Lac Garden Center and serve as the purchaser for store goods and plant material for the company.
The challenge of managing employees and inventory management at Stuarts keeps my job exciting, interesting, and most of the time, rewarding. Finding the right quality plants for people is a passion that I have and like to instill in all of the employees at Stuarts. I also try to establish a family orientated work environment and take pride in the people who work with me.
Aside from work, my wife and four children have the main priority in my life along with my Church. I currently serve on an Advisory Board for the Horticulture Program at Fox Valley Technical College and am a member of the School Board where my kids attend grade school. Coaching football and baseball is also a hobby that I enjoy.
Watching this company grow and seeing its ups and downs has certainly been educational, and seeing where this company is right now compared to a few years ago is definitely exciting. I am dedicated to and looking forward to consistently improving.
