Featured Employee – Nico Gallegos

Nico Gallegos, Production Manager
Industry Experience:  22 years
Signature Landscape: 13 years

In 1996 Nico moved to Kansas City and began working for a local landscape company, Brothers Company, which soon changed its name to True North Outdoor. After a few years True North sold its grounds maintenance division to Signature Landscape, and Nico stayed on to continue his career as an irrigation technician. He enjoyed the challenge of scheduling his daily workload in an attempt to make his days most efficient.

In 2007 Nico was recommended to begin training as a production manager for the Northland Branch. Nico viewed the opportunity as a chance to evolve and learn more about the landscape industry and management. Throughout his 11 years as a production manager Nico has learned to identify many types of plants, both annual and perennial & has learned how to plan ahead for the maintenance of those plants. Also, Nico has learned to interact with crews in order to get the best quality of work for Signature’s clients. Nico has also learned to maintain strong communication with Signature’s Account Managers to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction.

Nico is highly respected by Signature’s field staff, management, and executives. Signature’s Northland Branch Manager, Ben Boyd, states he can count on one hand the people he trusts and respects as much as he does his friend, Nico Gallegos!

When Nico isn’t managing crews he enjoys visiting with family. Nico also enjoys going fishing at Smithville Lake. Nico’s preferred fish to catch are Carp as he enjoys adding these to his homemade soups and a Hispanic specialty ceviche.
