Laytonsville, MD – Ruppert Landscape expanded its Virginia landscape management operations to include a new branch in southern Richmond, Virginia. This branch joins four existing landscape management branch offices in Virginia located in northern Richmond, Gainesville, Alexandria and Fredericksburg.

With the expansion, Dave Sharry has been promoted to serve as branch manager in southern Richmond.

“Dave’s work and performance was a major factor in Richmond’s growth and our ability to create the opportunity to split the existing Richmond branch into two,” said region vice president Fred Key. “This branch split, which geographically will occur north and south of the James River, will help accommodate the regional growth occurring in Richmond and enable us to better serve our customers.”

Sharry has more than 26 years of green industry experience and is a Marine Reserve veteran. He joined the company in 2011 as an area manager at a time when Richmond operations were just getting off the ground, and he has since been instrumental in the growth of the Richmond branch.

As a branch manager, he will be responsible for the overall welfare of the branch, including the safety and development of his team, strategic planning and budgeting, training and day-to-day operations.
