Jordan Thomas, Director of Operations, has been in the landscape industry since 2003. He started mowing yards in the summer of 2003 to earn extra money and was hired by Phillips Landscape and Nursery after school ended that year. The following spring, Jordan started his own landscape maintenance company. In 2005 he bought out another landscape company and increased his clientele. In 2008 Jordan sold his company to his partner and began a career in the logistics industry. After four years in logistics he decided to return to the landscape industry as it is his passion. In 2012 he started his own company again and focused on hardscape construction and providing services to property management companies. Due to Jordan's hard work and a quality product, his business grew and flourished for the next four years. At the end of 2016 he was approached by this company's ownership and was asked to take on the role of Director of Operations. He joined Genesis in 2017 and is now the Vice President. Genesis is very fortunate to have Jordan on the team and we anticipate a bright future for the company as he prepares to lead Genesis Landscape Group, Inc. into the future.
