New leaders will represent more than 500 industry professionals.

ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. – The New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association (NJLCA) announced the selection of Bob Pedatella, landscape industry certified technician, as vice president of the association for 2010 and 2011. It promoted Gail Woolcott to the position of director of operations.

Pedatella is president of Kodiak Landscape & Design in Haskell, N.J. The company offers landscape design, maintenance, paver design, installation and snow removal services. He was sworn into office at NJLCA headquarters on July 19.

“It is both an honor and a privilege to be serving as vice president of NJLCA, which represents more than 500 professionals who create and maintain green spaces that enhance our environment,” said Pedatella.

He is a past director and sergeant at arms of the NJLCA, serving from 1999 through 2001 and has been actively involved in NJLCA for more than 15 years. Pedatella attended the County College of Morris, where he obtained his associates degree in business and landscape management and design.

Woolcott was hired by the NJLCA in 2006 as a part-time bookkeeper. Since that time, she became the NJLCA’s office administrator and began to take on the management of many association events. She works with all of the NJLCA committees to facilitate events, legislative issues, the Achievement Awards, administration of  the certification exam and more. In June 2010, the combined board of directors promoted her to director of operations, allowing her to take the key role in association operations. She will continue to assist the executive committee, board of directors, and committees with carrying out the mission of the NJLCA.
