Kane Landscapes would like to congratulate Justin Hill, our Office Manager, for becoming a Landscape Industry Certified Manager.
The achievement of the Landscape Industry Certified designation demonstrates a distinguished level of professionalism. Certification is voluntary, and it represents a professional’s dedication to exhibiting superior knowledge in the field. Only a select few, approximately 1% of landscape professionals working in the United States today, are certified. The certification for managers is achieved by passing a rigorous written exam that encompasses tests the taker’s knowledge of landscaping, finances, human resources, strategic planning, leadership, marketing and sales, and a section on risk, law, and contracts.
The Landscape Industry Certified Manager designation comes from PLANET, the foremost green industry association in the United States. PLANET serves over 4,000 member companies totaling over 100,000 green industry professionals from all 50 states.
In May of 2013, Kane Landscapes registered several of its managers to start the process of gaining this certification. Justin is the first member of the team to complete the certification process. Over the next few months, Kane hopes that several more will join Justin in this certification.
