Bruce Wilson & Co., a landscape and green industry management consulting and peer group firm, has announced that Joseph Kujawa has joined the company as senior facilitator and practice leader.
Kujawa, a certified landscape professional and active member of the board of directors of the National Association of Landscape Professionals, was most recently an owner and executive vice president of Kujawa Enterprises, a legacy landscaping and winter services firm in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.
Kujawa will serve as a member of Wilson’s senior team and will be responsible for helping Bruce Wilson & Co. bring to life the goals outlined for strategic growth across all its service offerings. Kujawa will also provide executive leadership in implementing a growth vision for peer group education events and industry relations, and will consult with snow market leaders on winter services strategies and companies facing the unique challenges of a family-owned business.
“We are all delighted to welcome Joe to our team as we work together to bolster our expertise and strengthen our position as one of the top-ranked growth consultants in the green industry," said Bruce Wilson, the company's lead growth strategist. "Joe’s own experience in CEO peer groups, his formidable industry relationships, and his depth of expertise will help us serve our clients in whatever capacity we can be most useful – whether as a trusted advisor to CEOs and leadership teams or as a hands-on coach."
“Making this career move aligns my personal beliefs with an organization that values and facilitates learning, and the transformational power continuous improvement has on the business environment," Kujawa said. "I’m excited to be using my experience to help other snow and landscape companies inspire their teams, achieve their goals, and connect people, processes and technology to improve their financial performance.”
Kujawa graduated with a degree from Cornell University’s College of Architecture, Art and Planning and received a Master's degree from Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management. He served as manager of business development for HOK architectural and engineering design firm in Washington D.C. and did operational consulting for Fortune 500 clients during his tenure with the Keane Consulting Group in Chicago, Illinois. He helped run the family-owned Kujawa Enterprises until it sold to Sperber Landscape Companies in April 2019. He remains a strategic adviser to KEI.
In addition to Kujawa’s extensive contributions to the landscape and snow industries, he serves as Planning Commissioner for the Village of Elm Grove, Wisconsin, and is a former member of the board of directors for the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts in Brookfield, Wisconsin. In addition, he served as a member of the Alumni Board of Directors for Cornell Alpha Delta Phi and was a national director for the American Institute of Architecture Students.
