SAN DIEGO – LandCare appointed Jim Kisler as its branch manager for its location in Tacoma, Washington. Kisler joined LandCare in 2015 as a business development manager in the NorCal region.
Kisler has worked in the green industry for over 30 years, having worked at his grandfather’s avocado ranch in Santa Barbara, California, in high school, and then at a local nursery while attending Arizona State University. Kisler was excited to join the team to help grow the northern California market a few years ago.
“I’ve never worked with a business development manager who attended Stretch & Flex every morning and was there in the afternoon to thank everyone for their hard work,” said Karen Wilkinson, Northwest regional vice president at LandCare. “Jim truly embraces the philosophy of servant leadership, which is why he will make an excellent branch manager.”
Kisler said he looks forward to expanding his leadership skills in the Pacific Northwest.
“I have had some great mentors in my career,” he said. “I am excited to pay it forward and hopefully develop my team members into future managers.”
