The Davey Tree Expert Co. appointed Amber Krebbers to operations manager, western region, for Davey Resource Group (DRG) Environmental Consulting services.

Krebbers will work closely with area managers from across Davey’s service lines in the western region, including DRG, residential/commercial services and western utilities, as well as Davey’s national business development team, to support the sustainable growth and diversification of Davey’s services throughout California and parts of Washington state.

“It’s a pleasure bringing Amber back to Davey. With her recent experience managing environmental consulting and landscape restoration projects for utilities in California, Amber positions us to grow those services to other clients and markets,” said Karen Wise, vice president, DRG Environmental Consulting. “She brings not only technical knowledge and expertise to our team, but also outstanding communication and leadership skills. I look forward to seeing the growth and expansion of services Davey offers across the West Coast.”

Krebbers first joined DRG in 2006 as a utility consulting forester performing pre-inspections of electric distribution facilities in California. She went on to assist with electric transmission projects in Texas and California and a large street tree inventory in Hawaii. In 2009, she was promoted to project coordinator, and, in 2013, she started a new DRG initiative providing vegetation management solutions to natural gas utility providers.

Krebbers most recently served as the area manager for the DRG natural resource management team, where she provided business and technical leadership for natural resource projects, biological services, and traditional forestry.

Krebbers received a bachelor’s degree in horticulture from California Polytechnic State University. She is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist, ISA Certified Utility Specialist and a Certified Landscape Technician by the National Association of Landscape Professionals.

Senske Services added Tim Ehrhart as its new COO.

Ehrhart brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the home services industry with ServiceMaster and TruGreen.

His career in the industry began with ServiceMaster in 1997, where he quickly moved up the ranks and held several senior-level positions, including national sales director, director of operations, regional vice president of operations and vice president of sales. He brings a strong customer focus specializing in rapid, profitable growth through customer count increases, mergers and acquisitions and geographic expansion.

“I’m really excited about having Tim join the leadership team at Senske,” said Chris Senske, president. “His two decades of experience in the industry will bring a new focus on growth along with the ability to manage a more profitable organization.”

Design firm Cooper Carry promoted Josh Daniel to director of landscape architecture.

The move coincides with the firm’s enhanced focus on outdoor design as the pandemic has illuminated the need for increased open-air environments that allow for healthier gatherings. In his new role, Daniel will lead business development, design and site planning as well as the growth of the Landscape Architecture Studio by recruiting top talent and developing new business relationships.

A certified LEED Accredited Professional by the U.S. Green Building Council, Daniel has led multiple landscape architecture projects from conceptual planning through construction and served as the project landscape architect on three LEED Platinum projects. Prior to joining Cooper Carry, Daniel served as the Greenspace Director of Wylde Center in Decatur, Ga., where he managed the cultivation of various urban green spaces designed to educate and engage the community through programs in environmental science, sustainable urban living and organic gardening. In this role, Daniel was a 2018 fellow of Atlanta’s Center for Civic Innovation, a leadership and business development program for top social entrepreneurs effecting change across the region.

Previously, he led design efforts for Bio-Logical Capital, a stewardship development company and also held senior level design positions with the international award-winning firms Andropogon Associates and HOK. Since receiving his bachelor of environmental design and master of landscape architecture from Auburn University in 2000, Daniel has remained involved with the academy as a guest juror and a former member of Auburn’s Landscape Architecture Advisory Council. He is also a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects and the Council of Landscape Architects Registration Board.

At Cooper Carry, Daniel has recently been involved in several office, hospitality, government and community-oriented projects, including concepting the Legacy Park trail plan for the City of Decatur as well as a parks master plan for the new city of Stonecrest, Ga., in South DeKalb County. Cooper Carry is also currently involved in the master planning and landscape design for the vibrant redevelopment of The Galleria, an office park encompassing 2.1 million square feet with a 10.2-acre land parcel in Georgia’s Cobb County.
