Mark began his association with ASI in 1995 as the first full-time employee of the company’s predecessor, Lawncombers USA. He began as a crew member going from job to job, maintaining lawns and landscapes by mowing, weeding, fertilizing, and adjusting irrigation systems. He quickly advanced to the position of foreman, where he assumed a management role, assigning and supervising workers and overseeing the quality of the work. Mark’s management style and attention to detail did not go unnoticed, and in 2005 he became a partner and vice president of the company, a position he holds to this day. Throughout his 20-plus years of experience, Mark has gained and shared his knowledge and expertise with hundreds of ASI team members. He and Joe Chiellini have managed to grow the company, despite the unpredictable nature and growing competition of the landscape industry. Mark strongly supports both personal and professional development for himself and ASI team members. He has participated in numerous management and business-related classes and training sessions and readily applies their lessons to his management role within the company. Mark holds the company’s horticulture license and attends continuing education classes to maintain the most current industry standards. As the Vice President of Operations, Mark assists in sales and controls all aspects of the division, including crews, fleet and equipment purchases, and contracts. He regularly conducts personal visits with company clients to ensure satisfaction and quality.
