Marty is our associate of the week for this newsletter.  Marty began in Customer Service in April of 2010.  In 2012 he took on the role of Retail Manager.  When asked when he began at America’s Best he said “not sure when, my time here has been a blur”.  That says it all about Marty and how he has embraced the position.  Always with new ideas and being busy, busy, busy.

The things he enjoys most about America’s Best is helping customers try something new.  Watching our plantings from start to maturity.  Traveling to trial gardens and learning about new varieties.  Buying product for retail, and planting containers and installations.

As you know, we have a large selection of plants, but Marty’s favorite is Sun Coleus because they are always colorful, low in maintenance and they grow well in containers.

Did you know?  For relaxation, he retreats to his home, in Eagle River, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.  Marty enjoys classic autos, owning a 1975 Sting Ray.  His collecting also includes old postcards of Wisconsin and vintage cocktail shakers.  He is an ‘avid’ UW hockey & football fan.  Go Badgers!
