Few executives have had more impact on the improvement of young peoples’ lives than Bruce Moore, Sr. The founder and CEO of Eastern Land Management, a prominent regional landscape services firm, has devoted untold hours and resources over four decades to the Boys & Girls Club of Stamford, Conn. On March 28, 2018, at its annual City Chic banquet, recognized Bruce with the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Bruce’s influence in the community extends further than his work on behalf of kids. What sets Bruce apart is his commitment to work behind the scenes for nothing other than the pride of having contributed to the greater good.
Bruce’s company, ELM, hit its 40th anniversary milestone in 2016 and running it keeps him and his management team busy. His firm is listed among the Top 100 most successful landscape firms in the nation.
In his presenting the award, Bruce Moore Jr. offered these remarks: “… my father’s life is one lived by principle and passion, and a quest to improve the lives of others. As past president of the Umbrella Club, a local charity which donates funds to children with major medical challenges, he raised over $3 million for local children and hospitals. A few years back, my father inspired me to become involved with the Boys & Girls Club of Stamford and help them with their fundraising efforts, including chairing the annual ICON Golf Sponsorship Committee. Today, our company not only sponsors the Club’s annual golf fundraiser, but also City Chic and the Stamford Boys & Girls Corporate 5k. My father spent his lifetime working to improve the future of Stamford’s children. Tonight, I am pleased to present him with our 2018 Stamford Boys & Girls Club’s Lifetime Achievement Award!”
What unites us, said Bruce Sr. in accepting the award, is in our collective ability to make a difference. The more we have, the more we have an opportunity to use our gifts and our experience to make ‘giving back’ a pillar of our greater purpose.
Eastern Land Management offers a full range of commercial landscape, grounds and winter services to the northern market of New York City, Connecticut’s Fairfield County and New York’s Westchester County.
As part of ELM’s commitment to serve the growing needs of its Fairfield customers, as well as deliver unmatched asset value advantage for property and facility managers, and school and university campuses alike, ELM is scheduled to open a conveniently-located new service hub in Monroe, CT, in June, 2018.
