STEPHANIE WINGATE | CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER

 

My career at Weed Man has given me opportunities as an office assistant, technician, service manager,  quality control manager and technical manager. Most notably, I was able to reshape our quality control initiative and grow my skills as a coach while raising the standard for our team. Now in my role as COO I’m able to use those experiences to impact performance management across all our departments, as well as coach the leaders of our technical team and oversee human resources and financials.

I’m most proud  to be a part of an organization that exists because of someone that wants to help other people achieve everything they want in their lives. Helping others is something I value more than anything, and I’m so grateful to be a part of the company that my dad grew from the ground up, around that principle. 

Outside of Weed Man, I love coaching and playing volleyball and spending time with my family and our dog.

PATRICK REGAN | MOSQUITO HERO MANAGER

 

I started with Weedman in 2021, coming from a different  lawn care company where I was the Manager for technical operations and services. I began here as a technician, spent a few years helping out where help was needed, and landed where I am now as the manager for  all Mosquito, Tick, Tree, Shrub, and Bed Weed Services.

 

Outside of weedman I mostly spend time with my daughter, watch movies, read books, and build things in my small woodshop.

 

Success for me is all about customer service. It is the reason I am here. Our owner Tom, in my initial interview, told me, "We are a customer service company that happens to do lawn care", which has always stuck with me. If my customers are happy, I am happy.
