Eastern Land Management, an award-winning, full-service commercial landscape company located in Stamford, Connecticut, is pleased to welcome Patrick (Pat) McClellan to ELM as a new Area Manager.
In his new role, Pat will work closely with commercial real estate managers to develop landscape health and safety plans, coordinate field operations, and manage scope and budget for properties he serves.
“We are fortunate to add someone of Pat’s passion to the ELM team; his expertise will be a real asset to us and to our customers,” said Bruce Moore, Jr., vice president, operations.
A native of Long Island, Pat attended State University of New York, Farmingdale, where he pursued a teaching credential before switching to SUNY’s landscape and ornamental horticulture program. He holds a OSHA 30 license, and is a CT/NY-licensed pesticide operator.
“The best advice I could give any property manager would be to measure the value of sustainability,” notes Pat. “The ideal landscape is one that allows the beauty of the natural and built environment but strategically minimizes the disruption of its resources. Some people feel going green costs more money, but conservation is an investment that reaps savings – and improves property asset value – over time.”
Well said, Patrick. Welcome to our team.
