VENICE — Venice-based landscape company ArtisTree Landscape Maintenance and Design promoted Joe Mantkowski to general manager of the landscape division.
Mantkowski joined ArtisTree in 2004, according to a press release. In his new role, he will oversee day-to-day activities of the landscape division. He will work closely with designers to expand their account bases and improve operational systems. He will also be involved in all managerial aspects, including operations, purchasing, scheduling and customer relations.
Previously Mantkowski worked at his father's landscape design and nursery business.
“My dad is the biggest influence in my life,” Mantkowski says in a statement. “I saw how much time he put into his work, sitting up late drafting plans, and most of all, the sense of gratification he had when he successfully completed a job. His efforts always stuck with me because I admired all those things and wanted to have the same experiences when I got older.”
Artistree was founded in 1990. It specializes in planned community and commercial maintenance and landscape design and installation. The company serves Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties.
