Landscaping has been a part of Juan’s life from a young age. In 1989 at the age of 14, he and his family moved to Arizona, where his father owned and operated a small residential landscape company. On weekends and during school breaks, Juan would jump in and work with the company. At 17, he started working full-time for his father’s company – this is where his journey in the landscaping industry truly began.
By 1995, Juan was working for a large commercial company in the Valley. His desire to learn and grow encouraged him to hold different positions in the maintenance and construction fields for the next several years.
His hard work and dedication paid off, and Juan had his first management position by 2000 when he started working for the largest landscape company in the country. He received several awards during this time, including: Branch Employee of the Year, Top Sales Manager of the Year, Account Manager of the Year Southwest Region, and more.
In 2006, Juan had the career-highlight opportunity to Join FourSeasons Resorts & Hotels. There, he was able to utilize his experience and creativity and made great improvements to the 40-acre property located in the foothills of Pinnacle Peak. Juan received extensive training in exceeding client expectations and people management during the next seven years.
In 2013, Juan decided to return to his landscape industry roots and began working as an Account Manager for one of the largest commercial companies in the Southwest. Two years later, he was promoted to a Branch Manager position, and became a part of the Leadership Team. Juan was an effective and successful branch manager, and managed the largest branch in Arizona for the next three years.
Juan’s honesty and integrity have made him very successful in his 25-year career. His passion for the landscaping industry and his willingness to provide clients with the highest level of service made it easy for him to pursue his dream – to start something he could call his own.
Juan’s biggest passion is his family. His wife Martha and their children, Mia, Julian, and Monica, are his biggest supporters.
