SOLitude Lake Management, a provider of lake, stormwater pond, wetland and fisheries management solutions, acquired Aquatic Systems in January 2019. All company service offerings and infrastructure were officially unified this month. The rebranding of Aquatic Systems expands SOLitude's existing operations across 12 Florida offices.

Diaz Group opens new office in Elmhurst The new office is the third for the Diaz Group, which originally planted roots in Chicago’s north side in 2006. ELMHURST, ILLINOIS – Diaz Group, a family-owned business providing professional grounds management services to retail, commercial and industrial property owners, has opened a new office in Elmhurst. The new office, at 747 Church Road, Suite G7, is the third for the Diaz Group, which originally planted roots in Chicago’s north side in 2006. Diaz Group’s west suburban location allows the company to grow its footprint and more efficiently serve greater numbers of grocery stores, drug stores, restaurants and shopping malls throughout the Chicagoland area and in Wisconsin and Indiana. The Elmhurst location serves as a central point between the Chicago facility, where Diaz Group’s heavy equipment and supplies will continue to be stored, and its many satellite dispatch lots. The Elmhurst office, which is configured to accommodate up to 25 employees, is expandable and centrally located to serve clients with multiple suburban locations, such as Jewel-Osco, CVS and Mariano’s. Diaz Group’s dispatch center will remain in Chicago, at 2143 W. 51st Place, and more than half of the company’s current employees will continue reporting there. “Everything we do is rooted in making things better for our employees. We grew our business in the Back of the Yards because that’s where the workforce is, and as our company continues to expand, we need a location for our growing office staff to commute to more easily,” said Rafael Diaz, president of Diaz Group. Roughly 40% of the company's revenue comes from its landscaping services and it's trending upward, Diaz said. Meanwhile, company barbeques and annual community picnics are aimed at improving their community by providing resources to lift up their employees’ families. Diaz Group also offers community beautification services and holds free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, taught by volunteer Chicago Public School teachers, at their Back of the Yards office. Diaz says the company is committed to offering similar services to employees and the community surrounding the new Elmhurst office. “We attribute every bit of our success to putting our people first. Happy employees create great work, which creates great relationships and attracts new business,” he also said. “That goes for our vendor partners as well as our clients. In fact, we have built many long-term reciprocal relationships with contractors who are not only our vendor partners but also our valued clients.” WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Wright Outdoor Solutions has acquired Branching Out, an Omaha, Nebraska-based company that has served Omaha, Lincoln and surrounding communities for over 30 years. With the agreement, the company will operate as a division of Wright Outdoor Solutions. Wright Outdoor Solutions, an employee-owned company based out of West Des Moines, Iowa, currently offers services like residential and commercial landscape design and installation, complete tree care, lawn care, maintenance and design, holiday lights and décor, interior plantscaping, snow and ice management, land clearing, bulk mulch and plant rental. The acquisition of Branching Out allows Wright Outdoor Solutions to expand their footprint and provide Branching Out with additional resources and manpower. Branching Out, founded in 1981, provides residential and commercial interior plantscaping, exterior seasonal color rotation and interior holiday décor. “The partnership between the two companies is a natural fit, with their three services being services we already offer our Des Moines clients, which made them an attractive acquisition for us,” said Scott D. Packard, chairman and CEO of Wright Outdoor Solutions. “It’s an exciting opportunity for our two companies and our clients. We can take our resources and manpower on the Wright side and continue building on the foundation they’ve already established in Omaha.”  Not only is this a transition in ownership, but the decision was made to rebrand and reintroduce Branching Out to the marketplace under a new name known as Verdure Elements. “The decision to change the company name came with a lot of careful thought and consideration from our leadership team,” said Jennifer Anderson, general manager of Wright Outdoor Solutions. “The new name and brand is a reflection of the company’s vision and where we want it to go in the future.” The first step of the rebrand was a new logo and a newly launched website. The Branching Out website has been retired and redirects to the new Verdure Elements website. Additionally, after 38 years, Branching Out President Terry Whitney has stepped down from his position. Branching Out’s management team will remain in place under Anderson's leadership. Wright Outdoor Solutions, with history stemming from 1928, has approximately 70 employees based out of their West Des Moines location on Raccoon River Drive. Branching Out will continue operating out of their existing location. “I’m really excited to welcome Verdure Elements into the Wright family,” Anderson said. “We have a lot of experience in the business that they do and can provide them with enhanced support and resources from an operational perspective, including fleet capabilities, risk management, marketing, human resources, and more.” BLUE BELL, Pa. – BrightView, a commercial landscaping services company in the United States, recently announced that Amanda Orders, senior vice president of human resources for the company’s maintenance services segment, has been promoted to executive vice president and chief human resources officer. Orders will serve on the company’s executive leadership team and report directly to President and CEO Andrew Masterman. “Mandy is an exceptional human resources executive, leader and tireless advocate for our nearly 21,500 team members across the nation,” Masterman said. “She has made significant contributions in every dimension of human resources for this company and will be a great addition to senior leadership.” Orders will be responsible for the overarching BrightView People Strategy, which includes talent acquisition, compensation, benefits management, career development, performance management, succession planning, equity administration, retention, training, leadership and organizational development across all BrightView service lines. Orders started with the company in 2012 as human resources vice president. She was promoted to senior vice president of human resources for maintenance services in 2016. Orders was a key contributor to the Brickman/ValleyCrest merger that created BrightView in 2014, and has played a central role in GROW, an internal advocacy program for the women of BrightView. Prior to joining BrightView, Orders held leadership positions in human resources at Alliance Data, a provider of co-branded affinity credit cards, and the ScottsMiracle-Gro Company, a marketer of consumer lawn and garden products. Orders, a graduate of the Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business, will work out of the company’s headquarters campus in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania.
