Laytonsville, MD – Ruppert Landscape is pleased to welcome Josh Nichols as regional snow manager in the company’s landscape management division.

Nichols graduated from Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in landscape horticulture before joining the green industry with Urban Environments in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, which was acquired by Brickman in 2004. He worked at Brickman (now Brightview) for the past sixteen years, during which he spent five years as a branch manager and the last six years as regional snow manager with oversight of $60M in annual snow revenue. In that role, he was accustomed to traveling to a multitude of branches across nine Mid-Western states, which will serve him well in his new role overseeing more than a dozen Ruppert locations in the Mid-Atlantic region.

“The addition of this new position will help ensure that we remain well positioned to continue providing reliable, first-rate snow removal services to our customers,” said Tom Barry, president of the landscape management division. “In this position, Josh will focus on applying his vast experience and knowledge of an evolving industry to strengthen Ruppert’s snow business and, with that strength, protect and grow our landscaping business.”
