Daniel’s involvement in grounds maintenance began by helping his uncle mow residential lawns on weekends. In addition to helping his uncle’s lawn care business, Dan worked as a cook at Winstead’s, and then Waffle House, as his family had recently relocated to Kansas City.
In 2008, after the birth of his daughter Julissa, Dan went to work for a small landscape company where he worked his way up from a laborer to a crew leader. Next, Dan took an interest in applying fertilizers and herbicides to promote beautiful, healthy turf grass. Dan also became interested in caring for trees and shrubs by fertilizing as well as preventing pests from causing damage. These interests and the training that followed prepared Dan to be promoted to the position of Applications Manager. As the Applications Manager Dan earned his chemical applications license in both Missouri as well as Kansas.
In 2011, after the unexpected passing of the owner of the landscape company, Signature Landscape purchased the business and Dan continued with Signature. In 2013 Dan was promoted to the position of Production Manager.
Dan enjoys working outdoors. Throughout each day Dan visits properties Signature provides grounds maintenance for. Dan has a keen eye for detail and has an aptitude for leadership. Dan sincerely cares for the men and women he leads.
The position of Production Manager integrates daily communication with Account Managers and finding ways to do what’s best to keep customers satisfied. In addition to communicating with Account Managers, Dan stays in touch with the administrative staff to ensure crews are providing the correct services and clients are billed accordingly.
When Dan isn’t working he enjoys watching his kids’ soccer games. He has 3 sets of soccer schedules to manage; one for each child. Jocelyn age 14, Julissa age 10 and Manny age 8. During the off-soccer season Dan enjoys going on family bike runs, going to the lake or any outdoor family activity as well as vacation getaways.
