Don: Parking Lot Sweeping and Snow Removal
Since founding PPM in 1970, Don Louderback has put his heart and soul into building a successful and highly reputable property maintenance firm. His unparalleled attention to detail and customer service has catapulted the continued growth of the company. Don prides himself in making sure that every client and employee knows how much they are valued. With open lines of communication, he continues to build lasting relationships with all the people he meets.
Besides being involved with the day-to-day operations of the company, Don’s thirst for knowledge and zest for life has led him to get his commercial and multi-engine pilot’s license, in addition to becoming an accomplished aerial photographer. He is also an author of children’s books and a self-taught musician who has created numerous compositions. Don finds inspiration in nature’s beauty and is continually expanding both his mind and business. He is truly a renaissance man.
Kevin: Concrete and Hardscaping
Considering that Kevin’s first steps were taken at the original PPM site, it was only natural that the company would run through his veins. At the age of 12, Kevin started working with one of the mowing crews and continued his hands-on training with every department before becoming acting President in 1995. With degrees in Business, Economics, and Accounting, Kevin’s knowledge ensures the business operates efficiently and grows steadily each year. After graduating in the top ten percent of his class with 3 degrees, Kevin has demanded nothing but perfection from himself. His motto is: “You have to give your best to be the best,” and this belief has made both the company and Kevin a powerful force in this sector of the industry. He has been an intricate part in building a strong and respected company that will continue to grow and change as the industry and our clients demand.
Bobby: Retail Center / Mulch and other Bulk Materials
Bobby has been PPM’s mulch expert for many years and his expertise has helped to expand our retail center. By continuously researching products and following market trends, he knows which types of mulch and other resources will produce the best possible results for our consumers. His knowledge of landscaping materials is vast, and he can help you determine the type and amount of supplies you’ll need for any given project. He also oversees the daily operations of our landscape center and coordinates our project management facility. If you are a do-it-yourselfer or a landscape professional and need advice or assistance, Bobby is your man.
Brad: Ground Maintenance and Hardscaping
At the tender age of 16, just like every other child, Brad asked his father for a car… and a lawn mower showed up in its place. As many a father would say, “If you want a car, you shall earn the money to buy your own.” Fast-forward to present day, and Brad is one of the hardest working and most experienced Ground Maintenance Supervisors in the area. Brad’s experiences have taught him the techniques to bring the best out of any turf area, the ability to fix any problem, and the knowledge of which type of grass will work best in any situation.
Besides Brad’s ground maintenance expertise, he brings a diverse knowledge of the landscaping industry to the business. Succeeding in this field requires being highly skilled in all aspects of the business, and Brad jumped at the opportunity to expand into hardscaping by working as part of a top-notch hardscaping company. During his time there, Brad became versed in the skills necessary to design and install intricate and beautiful concrete patios, driveways, and sidewalks. Brad’s addition to PPM has been a huge asset to both the company and its clients.
