Here’s to the Spirit of Independence. “We celebrate the spirit of independence that dwells deep in the heart of lawn and landscape business owners. These people take on the risks and the costs of starting, growing, and maintaining a business. It’s not easy,” said Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO. “These business owners are ambitious, they have developed successful philosophies, accumulated knowledge, and developed a great team. They take superior care of their employees, customers, and vendors. They build identities in their communities as caretakers. They give back. The true American spirit of independence is that you can’t go at it alone. You must build a great team. And be a great teammate, in return. Here’s to you and yours on this Holiday. Have a wonderful 4th of July.”
