“Jim’s results-oriented approach is what will make him successful in the position of branch manager,” said Bob Jones, president of Ruppert’s landscape construction division. “He has a reputation for being a quality-focused manager who will do whatever it takes to get the job done. We are looking forward to his leadership in our Virginia branch.”
