Vice President, East Division
Neil Carter leads the East Division operations team for LandCare. He brings a lifetime of green industry experience to the role: former business owner, top executive for The Brickman Group’s Midwest Division, and most recently as an independent consultant.
A graduate of Purdue University, with a degree in Agricultural Economics, Neil played football, earned NCAA honors in track and field, and was a leader in his FarmHouse Fraternity chapter.
He brought his Midwest values and that drive for excellence and integrity with him into the business world. Neil’s breadth of knowledge includes construction, design, maintenance and snow management, as well as business strategy and acquisition integration.
But more importantly, his nurturing personality, mild manner and keen insight have helped him grow businesses and leaders throughout the green industry. Neil’s passion for mentoring teams, building strong relationships and maintaining standards of integrity guides LandCare teams in the East to deliver their best to their customers.
Neil’s approach to leadership is long-term, and values based. He teaches that relationships last beyond today’s business deal and what we do today can have a lasting impact.
“It’s important to me to be a part of a team that is proactive in building a legacy of new leaders that will impact the green industry for years to come,” said Carter. “There are few companies that strive to positively impact people’s lives every day. It’s rewarding to be aligned with leaders at LandCare, in a value centric organization that are all equally focused on that mission.”
With his wife Pam, and their children, Neil splits time on his farm and his home in Lake Zurich, IL.
