Wright Tree Service Names Gilmore to Division Manager and Larson to Regional Manager
Wright Tree Service, an employee owned company specializing in utility vegetation management, recently named Jeffrey Gilmore division manager and Adam Larson regional manager. Collectively, the two bring to their new positions more than 40 years of experience in utility vegetation management. As division manager, Gilmore will oversee operations in Indiana, and Larson, as regional manager, will oversee operations in Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota.
Gilmore started with Wright Tree Service in 1999 as a groundman in Illinois and eventually worked his way up, becoming foreman, general foreman, and most recently a safety supervisor. He also served on the Ameren Contractor Safety Committee as the Committee Chairman from 2014 to 2017.
“From operations to our safety, education, and training departments, Jeff has spent nearly 20 years with Wright Tree Service and will bring that wide breadth of knowledge to his new role,” said Regional Manager John Church. “It is this type of experience that our customers have come to expect, and that Jeff will continue with our current customers and as we forge new relationships.”
Larson has worked in vegetation management for over 24 years. Throughout his career, he has worked as a supervisor, general foreman and regional manager within the utility vegetation management industry. Most recently, he was the program manager of vegetation management at Xcel Energy. He is an International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist and Utility Specialist and has served as a judge in sanctioned tree climbing championships in four states.
“Adam comes to us with extensive experience in our industry as a contractor and also as a utility customer,” said Wade Myers, senior vice president. “He is a great addition to our team.”
