More fantastic news from the hiring front! We are delighted to announce that experienced green industry leader Jeff Shufelt has joined the Spring-Green Lawn Care family as the new Strategic Business Development Manager. Jeff will work with all new franchisees as they join the Spring-Green family and will also head up efforts to continue franchise expansion and provide information to prospective new franchisees.
Jeff has over 30 years of experience in the lawn care industry. He holds a BS in agronomy from Iowa State University and served as Vice President of Operations of Barefoot Grass lawn Service from 1994 to 1997. Jeff was part of the original management team that helped Barefoot Grass grow to over $100 million in revenue and become a publicly traded NASDAQ company. In 1997 he then opened his own full-service maintenance company with a focus on high value residential clients, which he owned and operated until 2002. From 2003 to 2006 he worked for Scotts Lawn Service as Regional Director and Acquisition Specialist, and then for BlueSky Group and multiple regional lawn care companies as an M&A intermediary. He brings the cumulative value of these decades of experience to his new position at Spring-Green.
We are very glad to add Jeff’s experience, excitement and overall energy to our Spring-Green family. With his talents, along with our other fantastic new hires and, of course, our exceptional franchisees, we feel certain that only great things are on the horizon in 2014!
