Letting Go to Grow with Marty Grunder: Episode 11 of Growing in the Green Industry Podcast

In the 11th episode of the Growing in the Green Industry Podcast, hosts Miles Kuperus III, system architect at Include Software, Neal Glatt, managing partner of GrowTheBench, Brett Lemcke, VP of R.M. Landscape, and Luke Melograno, production coordinator at Mariani Landscape talked to Marty Grunder, president and CEO of Grunder Landscaping Co. and of The Grow Group, a leading green-industry consultancy.

Grunder discovered his entrepreneurial spirit when he was just a teenager with a used lawn mower looking for a way to put himself through college. Through determination and hard work, he grew that initial $25 investment into Grunder Landscaping Co. (GLC), one of the most successful operations of its kind in the Midwest. The company has been in business for 37 years and 25 years ago Grunder started speaking professionally.

In this podcast, Grunder discusses how the only thing constant is change and the importance of being aware of how you come across to others and listening to young people. He shares about the young professionals who are on his leadership team and how he welcomes feedback from everyone on staff. He also explains how he got to his current company culture.
