Ruppert Landscape recently promoted Brent Kelly to lead the company’s Mableton, Georgia location as branch manager.
As branch manager, Kelly will be responsible for the overall welfare of the Mableton branch, including the safety and development of his team, strategic planning and budgeting, training, customer service, and day-to-day operations.

His career has spanned many facets of the green industry and several states including Baltimore, MD; Hilton Head, SC; Savannah, GA; and New Orleans, LA. He joined Ruppert two years ago as an area manager and was promoted to associate branch manager within a year, a role which was designed to prepare talented team members to take on future leadership opportunities.
“Brent has made a tremendous impact on the Mableton branch in his two years here, and his leadership has led to great success and some large contract renewals this past season,” said Steve Faber, region manager in the company’s landscape management division. “He leads by example in performance and customer service, and we are looking forward to seeing him continue to grow the Mableton team.”
“I’m excited to take on this new role and for the opportunity it gives me to provide for my team,” said Kelly. “My first area of focus will be to increase our efforts on training to better provide for our clients, which will in turn better provide for all our employees.”
