Joshua developed LandOne from his years of experience to finally provide our industry with the practical tool it needs to bid and manage projects.

Bob Maffei recently stepped down as CEO of the Cape Cod company he started 30 years ago and ultimately sold, Maffei Landscape Contractors, in order to devote himself fully to his new venture, The Maffei Companies. The Maffei Cos is a consulting firm dedicated to helping landscaping companies scale their business and take their development to the next level.
Toby Massengale

Massengale focused on the commercial side of the landscaping industry, serving businesses all over Southern Louisiana. In 2018, Massengale Grounds Management was purchased by Rotolo Consultants Inc. which expanded operations throughout the state.
Ben Collinsworth
Ben Collinsworth is GM at Yellowstone Landscape, a company of roughly 4,000 which operates in several states around the US.

Growing a business in a manner that allows the business to be sold one day creates wealth.
