Laytonsville, MD – Ruppert Landscape is pleased to announce the promotion of Paul Pestun to the position of director of business development in the company’s landscape construction division.
Pestun holds a degree in landscape management from Montgomery College and is a platinum-level graduate of ABC’s Leadership Development Program. He joined the company as an assistant field manager in 2012 with over 10 years of landscape construction experience. After a few short months, he was promoted to the newly created position of assistant production manager and helped pilot that new level of management in the division. In 2014, he was promoted to the position of business developer in our national landscape construction branch, during which time he developed sales opportunities in markets where Ruppert did not have a permanent physical presence. His efforts helped the national construction branch set a new division record of $34.1 million dollars in sales for 2017, with projects being sold in Dallas, Austin, Oklahoma City, and Lexington, KY.
“This new position will be an expansion of Paul’s current responsibilities as national business developer,” said Bob Jones, president of the landscape construction division. “We’re confident that he will become a valuable resource to our sales teams and look forward to the impact he will have on sales growth across the division for years to come.”
In his new role, he will be responsible for working with the sales team at each landscape construction branch to help unify sales effort across the division. In addition, he will be responsible for tracking market trends and creating new sales opportunities on a national level, targeting markets with high construction volume and generating high-level relationships with owners, developers, general contractors, and landscape architects. He currently resides in Frederick, MD with his wife, Amy.
