| January 18, 2011

Stay Green has promoted Jeff Norquist as the new operations manager for the Santa Clarita-based company’s clients in the Los Angeles metro area, where he previously served as an account manager.

“We take a lot of pride in promoting from within, and Jeff is one of those individuals who are keys to Stay Green’s success,” said CEO Chris Angelo. “His 15 years of account management experience in the landscape industry, his attention to detail and his ability to adapt to changing circumstances will all be highly valuable in his new role as operations manager for our customers in LA and the surrounding cities.”

Over the past year, Norquist has demonstrated these qualities by adapting and modifying maintenance procedures to keep his clients’ properties in top shape – despite new watering restrictions in the area, Angelo said.

In addition, Norquist is in the process of completing the testing to become a certified water manager.

“I’m proud to be part of the Stay Green family, and to have the opportunity to serve a great group of customers,” Norquist said. “Our industry has its own unique set of challenges, from water conservation to plant health care, and it’s gratifying to be able to help our customers meet these challenges and to maintain healthy, environmentally sound landscaping.”
