Tree Care Company Elevates Long-Time Employee to Leadership Role
HAYWARD, Calif., June 7, 2018 – Arborwell, California’s leading employee-owned tree management company, is pleased to announce that Kris Yamaguchi, formerly Regional Manager of the San Jose area, has been promoted to Vice President. Yamaguchi has led Arborwell’s San Jose region for 10 successful years – his new title was earned through hard work, strong leadership, and determination.
“Kris is a leader who has helped Arborwell achieve its goals throughout the bay area. His focus on building great customer relationships, creating an excellent team, and fostering teamwork were main considerations for his promotion,” says Andy LaVelle, President of Arborwell. “Kris has definitely earned his new position.”
Yamaguchi has been with Arborwell for over a decade, and his expertise in arboriculture combined with his passion for people has allowed him to flourish in the tree management industry. Prior to joining Arborwell, Yamaguchi spent ten years as a Consulting Arborist covering the San Jose area. Yamaguchi focuses his time and energy on developing business and managing numerous accounts from San Jose down to Monterey.
“The San Jose region office began in 2007 with a three-person crew, a crew supervisor and myself, out of a two-room office/yard that felt like a second home at times,” says Yamaguchi. “We experienced success and growth year after year to become the multi-crew production unit that we are today. Thank you to my team members, past and present, to the front office to the back office, to the regions; all who helped me (us) succeed over the years.”
