What I do: Vice President/Co-owner, Sales and Marketing focusing on managing the NPK sales team and the annual holiday campaign. Newest task is overseeing the development of our social marketing with our summer intern.

A Little About Me: Hailing from the Chicago suburb of Skokie, Brian has been in the interior plantscape industry since his graduation from the University of Nebraska where he majored in Landscape Design. (Go Huskers!) While at Nebraska, Brian was a member of the Division 1 NCAA Championship Gymnastics team. After 15 years with a large corporation, Brian decided to take his passion for customer service, design and horticulture to the then partnership that was NPK. From there, Brian has taken sales and client satisfaction to the next level. Brian’s favorite plant of the summer is the Foxtail Fern but ask him in a month and his answer will likely be different.

I Like: Time at my cottage with family and friends, tennis, piano, travelling, designing, his partner’s cooking, competition, and art.
