Rob started working in landscaping at the age of 14 and studied Landscape Design at Mohawk College in Hamilton. After working for several companies in construction, maintenance and snow management, Rob operated his own small landscape company for 13 years.
With a keen eye for detail, Rob has always enjoyed creating new elements for clients and maintaining properties to a high standard of quality care. Now at Gelderman, he is excited to be part of this team that also values integrity, quality and care for their customers and staff. A life-long learner, Rob likes reading about new innovations in the industry or streaming webinars to strive for best practices in his work.
Rob and his wife Krista have been married for 14 years and they love spending time with their 3 young children. As a family, they like to cycle, hike, and camp, exploring Canada’s vast and diverse landscape. Rob and his family also volunteer at their church’s food bank donation garden. In his spare time, Rob enjoys creating new art pieces using various mediums, whether it is carving snow, pumpkins or wood using chisels and chainsaws.
Rob is working closely with John Buikema to service our customers across all four locations in the Maintenance Enhancements Division.
