Luis Carrillo Promoted to Charlotte Branch Manager


Ruppert Landscape is pleased to announce the promotion of Luis Carrillo to the position of branch manager in the company’s Charlotte, North Carolina landscape management branch.

Carrillo first joined the Ruppert team as a seasonal crew member while studying for his BA in Exercise and Sports Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon graduation, he spent time with the NFL as an athletic trainer for the Carolina Panthers before deciding that a career as a landscape professional would be a better fit for his growing family. He rejoined Ruppert full-time in 2017 as a field manager in Charlotte, where he was quickly promoted to enhancement manager and continued to excel and help the team improve their enhancement sales and production. He also took on the responsibility of overseeing the account for the branch’s largest customer.

“Luis has proven himself to be a reliable and dedicated employee who has earned the trust of his team members and some of our biggest clients,” said Fred Key, region vice president in the company’s landscape management division. “We look forward to the Charlotte team’s continued success and growth in the years to come under his leadership.”

As branch manager, Carrillo 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.
