Ruppert Landscape, Laytonsville, Maryland, promoted Regina Brydges to the position of regional business development manager.
Brydges holds a bachelor’s degree in horticulture from Virginia Tech and is a Virginia Certified Horticulturist. She joined Ruppert in 2012 as a business developer in the first Richmond landscape management branch and quickly achieved success; in five out of the past seven years, she has exceeded $1 million in sales. In 2017, she was honored with the company’s Achievement Award, recognizing her outstanding track record and contributions to the company. In the past three years, Regina has been instrumental in growing the branch and positioning them to add two new branch operations in the Richmond market.
“Regina has often shared how much she enjoys and values helping others in sales through hands-on training and by serving as a resource,” says Kevin Hazelgrove, region manager in the company’s landscape management division. “This promotion will afford her the opportunity to do that on a larger scale, benefiting sales of each branch in the central Virginia region.”
In her new position, she will provide leadership to the region’s business developers and will support them by providing coaching and training in the sales process, coordinating networking for new and existing relationships, and hiring and onboarding as needed.
