Landscaping Company’s Staff Biographies
Zak grew up on a farm east of Colorado Springs and has been in the landscape industry ever since High School. After graduating from Colorado State University and spending a year traveling, looking for a career, it was then in 2005 that ZGL was born. Zak started the company with just a vision and a few tools to get his new business going.
Since then, Zak has built one the best teams in the industry. Through constant training and ongoing industry education, Zak and his team have become one of the best. Zak himself goes through the same training that his team does, from being Industry certified, ICPI installer certified, to holding a general contractors license from the City of Fort Collins, and many other classes and certifications.
Zak is highly involved in the green industry from the local chapter of ALCC to sitting on water boards and numerous other boards throughout the community. From time to time you will even catch Zak at speaking events about the industry.
Zak enjoys working throughout the community. Every year Zak works on a few service projects. Being an active member of the community is important to Zak as he wants ZGL to be “a local business you can trust”.
Landscape Maintenance Help Desk Manager
Erin joined ZGL in 2014 as the Landscape Maintenance Help Desk Manager. Even though Erin came into the company without any industry knowledge, her past experience in administrative roles within different fields has allowed her to learn the industry quickly. With this ability, the Help Desk has become an integral part of the Landscape Maintenance Division at ZGL. Erin’s role includes routing landscape maintenance crews, irrigation techs and add-on techs each day to ensure they know where they need to be. Erin is the main point of contact for current landscape maintenance clients to call with any problems, questions or needs that they may have. The goal of the help desk is to respond in a day or less to the needs of the client. She works closely with the account managers to put together bids for potential HOA and commercial maintenance clients as well as any keeping them up-to-date regarding their accounts.
Erin is a native of Northern Colorado, a graduate of Poudre High School and has an Associates Degree in Business from Front Range Community College. When she isn’t keeping the Maintenance Division on track, she lives in Wellington with her husband Sheldn and daughter Taylor. She enjoys running, weight lifting, reading, fishing and camping.
