The Network seeks to empower the 500,000 Latino landscape professionals in the U.S.

The National Association of Landscape Professionals, Fairfax, Virginia, announced that Echo Incorporated, Lake Zurich, Illinois, has become the exclusive partner of the Latino Landscape Network.

The Latino Landscape Network (formerly the National Hispanic Landscape Alliance) connects and empowers the community of 500,000 Latino landscape professionals in the United States.

The Network, powered by Echo, supports Latino landscape professionals by working with NALP to help develop training materials and resources and provide networking and mentoring opportunities that help advance Latino businesses and employees.

“It’s an honor to partner with NALP on this important initiative. The professional landscaping industry is comprised of a huge Latino population – from business owners to pros working across all segments of the industry.,” says Wayne Thomsen, vice president of marketing and product management for Echo.

NALP also advocates for the industry and amplifies the voice of Latino landscapers with legislators at the state, local and federal levels.

“Latino landscape professionals are critical to the success of our industry,” says NALP CEO Britt Wood. “We applaud Echo for their commitment to the Latino landscape community, and we look forward to working together to provide new resources to help people advance their careers and grow their businesses.”
