The year is still young, but things are moving at Gelderman Landscape Services! Nathan Helder is pleased to announce that Andrew Westrik has joined Gelderman Landscape Services in the role of Director of Business Development.
Gelderman’s service area has grown across much of the Golden Horseshoe in recent years. The addition of the Gelderman Branches in Guelph, Kitchener and Mississauga to the home branch of Waterdown has facilitated significant growth – a good challenge to deal with!

Strategic planning has allowed the addition of this director’s role with a dedicated focus to business development. “We look forward to Andrew building on an already strong foundation of business development at Gelderman that includes brand placement and awareness, market expansion and acquisition of new clients”, said Nathan.
Andrew comes with a wealth of business development and relationship management experience. Most recently Andrew was a Client Partner with FranklinCovey, a global company specializing in performance improvement. “I am excited to start a new challenge at Gelderman and look forward to working with the team to further expand our presence in the marketplace. I am fortunate to be joining such a respected company that prides itself on top quality service.”
Andrew is a graduate of the University of Guelph with a BSc degree. Andrew lives in Guelph with his wife Theresa and their 6 children.
