With a career in the green industry that spans over 30 years, Ken Hutcheson, president of U.S. Lawns, was presented with the prestigious Lawn & Landscape Leadership Award during the Green Industry Great Escape in Las Vegas in 2013.
The annual Lawn & Landscape Leadership Awards recognize outstanding individuals in the green industry. Now in its 13th year, the program has honored dozens of business owners, executives and researchers for their leadership and dedication to the landscaping industry.
“I am honored to have been chosen as a recipient of this award,” said Ken. “We have come a long way as a company since the early days in 1986, and it has been a tremendously rewarding ride to get to where we are today. Truly, it is the people I have met along the way that makes this ride so exciting. The ideas that are born from a single thought, the energy people bring to every discussion, the synergy created by the franchise itself gives us renewed energy every day. It feeds passion back into the cycle when people are encouraged and empowered to help drive the train. That is franchising.”
“No one deserves this award more than Ken,” said Mike Carlo, U.S. Lawns multi-territory franchise owner. “I don’t know any man who is more driven.”
