The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) announced that Britt Wood has been named chief executive officer.

Wood will assume his new role on Oct. 7 and will represent NALP at Landscapes in Louisville, Ky.

“Britt’s depth of leadership experience and proven track record of delivering results across various industries throughout his career will be huge assets as he focuses on building on NALP’s many successes and guiding our association into new areas of opportunity and growth,” said Jeff Buhler, NALP president.

Prior to joining NALP, Wood spent more than two decades in trade association executive leadership roles, most recently as senior vice president of business development and industry relations for the Consumer Healthcare Products Association. Previously, Wood held positions with the International Foodservice Distributors Association, American Society of Civil Engineers, Loss Prevention Foundation and the Retail Industry Leaders Association.

“I look forward to working closely with our dedicated board and staff to continue to grow our membership by further enhancing NALP’s value to the lawn and landscape community,” Wood said. “We will work diligently to continue to enhance the good work that has been done in advocacy, education, standard setting and workforce development in an effort to make NALP even more valuable to our members.”

Wood succeeds Carol Keeling, who served as interim CEO of NALP since February. Keeling replaced Sabeena Hickman, who stepped down after eleven years at the helm of NALP.
