I believe strongly in continuing the education of my management team and sending executive leaders like Josh Willey to the very best business schools in the country. Josh’s ability to complete this program while balancing his responsibilities at Green Lawn & Green Pest and his family speaks to his great leadership abilities," says President/Owner Matt Jesson.

During his tenure he has helped take the company from just over $11.5 million to over $19 million in annual revenue. As senior vice president of operations, Willey oversees customer service and production departments along with the company's Lawn & Pest outside sales program.
