LandscapeCareerSearch/CareerClimbers has been making placements in the commercial landscape construction and maintenance industries since 1999.

The owner, Christine Kratcoski, (previously Christine Cressman), brings 16 years of management recruiting experience to LandscapeCareerSearch. Upon entering the landscape industry from high-tech recruiting in ’99, Christine was very fortunate to receive a few years of mentoring by senior managers with 25-35 years industry experience.

The landscape industry now faces many of the challenges that the high-tech industry has been facing for years: a fluctuating market, an increasing demand for managers and a decreasing pool of qualified candidates, integration of technology into daily operations, competitive compensation packages, rising costs of worker’s comp and medical insurance, cross training, mentoring programs, retention strategies, company mergers and acquisitions, integrating cultures, downsizing, rightsizing and many other challenges.

Great career moves are always possible with a well developed network of business contacts in place. Christine is experienced in developing those networks of opportunity and navigating people to people successfully under all economic circumstances.

Rick Kratcoski, who also acts as a recruiter, is involved in the research and development of new company contacts He earned a B.S. in Ornamental Horticulture from Cal Poly Pomona in 1987 and is a manager in the landscape industry. Rick knows what it takes to drive a successful landscape operation in both construction and maintenance.
