In the 48th episode of the Growing in the Green Industry Podcast, hosts Miles Kuperus III, system architect at Include Software, Neal Glatt, managing partner of GrowTheBench and Brett Lemcke, VP of R.M. Landscape talk with Josh Flynn, CEO of Seabreeze Property Services.
Flynn didn’t set out to join the green industry, but once he did, he knew he could make a positive impact. After finishing up his degree in environmental studies from the University of Richmond, he joined up with the Peace Corps, which took him to Paraguay for two-and-a-half years, where he served as an environmental and education volunteer.
After returning to the States, he worked at Wollman Gardens outside of Washington, D.C., Lowe’s Garden Center and Greencare Landscape, both in Scarborough, Maine, before joining Seabreeze Property Services, in Portland Maine in 2016. He quickly rose through the ranks and became CEO in July 2020.
In this podcast, discussion topics include Seabreeze’s tech-first approach to empowering employees and providing them with the tools needed to operate efficiently, how investment in employees pays off, and the steps all companies should be taking now to prepare for the future.
