Regional Vice President South East
Daniel began working, weekends and summers, while he was still a kid in middle school. He wasn’t tossing newspapers, either; he was working cattle, felling trees, building fences, and doing other similarly challenging tasks. He was well-prepared for hard work when he reached the “real world.”
Daniel (who grew up wanting to be a forest ranger) has always preferred being outside. He’s been in the landscape industry since he graduated from college. His experience in the industry, his great integrity, and his easy, skilled way in dealing with others, have made him an invaluable leader.
These days, he lives on a ranch with his wife, Michelle. They share the land with horses (Michelle’s passion) and dogs. In his free time, Daniel pursues activities like hunting, hiking, canoeing, and scuba diving. He is involved with his church, and quick to give a helping hand where it’s needed. Like many a good, native Floridian, Daniel spends fall Saturdays watching college football and yelling for the Gators. And—again, in good Florida tradition—he makes an insanely yummy key lime pie.
Scott has been in the Green Industry for over 20 years. He first started working as a landscape installer and tree technician in Austin for a residential and commercial company. After relocating to Florida in 2001, Scott continued his education at First Coast Technical Institute.
Scott worked for a local company, focused on growing the commercial installation division and also oversaw the maintenance division. Scott then moved to the project management position designing landscapes, irrigation systems, tree relocation and complete project rehabs on large commercial sites. From project management, he then moved to operational and branch management roles for a national company. Scott is excited to be part of the LUSA family, and throughout his career in the landscape industry, Scott has always shared a passion for taking care of customers and supporting the hardworking employees who perform the landscape services on client properties and building long term partnerships.
Scott has been married to his wife, Jackie, for twenty years and has three children. Scott enjoys the outdoors, going hunting and fishing with his friends and family.
Business Development Manager
David has always enjoyed people, and he likes making them laugh. (He was even voted “wittiest” in his high school class.) He’s fond enough of people that, during a crisis early in his marriage, he decided he needed to understand them (and himself) better. Impressed with a personality assessment program he took through a group called Personality Insights, he enrolled in their full program, and became a certified personality consultant. What he learned changed the trajectory of his life. For starters, he credits it with saving his marriage.
That was some thirty years ago. Since then, he and his wife have shared their success from the stage, talking about the tough times, and giving hope and encouragement to their listeners. David has done some solo speaking, too. He’s one of those rare people who actually loves to get up and address a crowd. He’s spoken to companies, clubs, and churches about understanding different personality types. Motivation is one of his strengths.
At more laid-back times, David enjoys fishing and riding his bike, as well as spending time with his wife of 38 years, their two sons and a daughter, and their ten grandkids.
