Ken Hutcheson is not just our President; he is our leader. He’s a numbers guy by nature, but he’s also very approachable. He takes the time to mentor new franchisees, counsel veterans of the network, and advise employees. With more than 30 years of experience in the green industry, Hutcheson is something of a legend in our business. He’s also a marathon runner and philanthropist, having recently completed the Boston Marathon to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes. You can be sure that when he speaks, people listen.
Mike Fitzpatrick has a dry sense of humor, but he’s pretty serious about details. He oversees the team of Franchise Advisors who provide unparalleled Home Office support to every franchisee in our network. He also supports the Development Team who work closely with new franchisees who join the U.S. Lawns network. Fitzpatrick has 30 years of experience in the industry, and his leadership has made U.S. Lawns one of the most respected landscape management choices in the country. When he’s not focused on growing our business, Fitzpatrick enjoys dedicating himself to his passion for cycling.
