Under the executive leadership of ELM Branch Manager, Scott Distasio, operational excellence and positive customer approval ratings are critical front-line touchpoints.
“Scott’s strong, relevant leadership improves the success of our whole organization,” said Bruce Moore, Jr., vice president, ELM operations. “He helps us align quality and systems, and leverages new technologies and ideas to keep our services and approaches fresh.”
Scott joined ELM in 2014, with progressive technical and management experience in all major landscape disciplines, including design-build, horticulture, tree care, and advanced snow/ice management.
A Connecticut native, Scott began his landscape career with a local garden center when he was in high school. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Development from the State University of New York at Cobleskill, Scott worked in landscape services industry for fifteen years prior to joining ELM in 2014. When not overseeing landscape projects and making service more meaningful for customers, Scott spends his off hours renovating his home and garden.
When asked what one piece of advice he would give customers, Scott said the secret to lasting landscape success and return on investment is multi-year planning. “It all boils down to understanding what’s affecting value and providing an actionable plan to deliver it,” he noted.
“Scott is ambidextrous,” said Bruce Moore. “He can manage the branch organization while simultaneously making sure that our customers are better off for having invested their money with us. We’re proud to have him on our team.”
