Jim Kemp, Sales Representative - Major Accounts - Installation Services


Jim joined Bret Achtenhagen’s Seasonal Services in February of 2019 in the role of Sales Representative – Major Account in the Installation Division. Jim started his work in the landscape industry at the age of 14 working for a small landscape company owned by his then neighbor. He found a passion for the work and would soon decide to make a career of it. Having worked positions from Laborer to Business Owner as well as Sales Manager, Jim has always gravitated to the Landscape Design and Installation aspect of the business. Today, he focuses on new construction, as well as, renovative landscape projects. With over 25 years’ experience, and a diverse scope of landscape disciplines, Jim spends much of his time working on larger projects while still enjoying the unique challenges of smaller scale landscapes.

When not at work, you can find Jim fishing the inland lakes or boating on the big lake with his Wife and family.
