Meet Our Leadership Team
Building lasting relationships through quality service
President & CEO
David has been at the helm of Woods & Wetlands for over a decade. In his leadership role, he oversees all phases of the company’s operations, including the management of the field team’s preserve mitigation, restoration, and maintenance. David is also responsible for leading the company’s strategic and business development initiatives. He takes great pride in the team he has built, and their dedication to meeting their clients’ ecosystem needs.
Cory has been Woods & Wetlands’ Ecosystem Restoration Manager for 15 years. He is our “man in the field” and directly supervises each of our team members. Cory has also become the person our customers depend on to ensure their projects are done on time and on budget. He is involved in estimating, scheduling and overall quality control. His background includes all phases of exotic, non-native, and nuisance vegetation removal, and the replanting of native species for both private properties and government agencies. These include a large variety of environmentally sensitive projects.
Shannon joined the Woods & Wetlands team in January, 2014, and quickly became an integral part of our company. She runs all of our day-to-day office operations, including but not limited to, accounts payable/receivable, payroll, human resources, insurance, running financial reports, and more. Additionally, her willingness and flexibility allow her to assist with large projects when needed. Shannon brings with her 20 years of experience running and managing businesses. This gives her a unique perspective and understanding that helps Woods & Wetlands remain competitive and provide the best possible pricing to our clients.
Kole is one of the newer members of our team and currently acts as our Operations Manager. He supervises multiple crews in all phases of environmental remediation while assisting with the estimating of projects and the scheduling of our field teams. Over his career in Southwest Florida, Kole has worked on projects of all sizes – included those valued at well over $1,000,000.
Shane is one of the more diverse members of our staff. He can operate every piece of equipment we use and runs multiple crews simultaneously. Shane began his career in the field 6 years ago with a backpack and machete, so he knows exactly what it takes to get the job done right. Because of his hands-on experience, he provides valuable insight to each project.
What Our Clients Have to Say
The South Florida Water Management District paid us a surprise visit last week for the purpose inspecting our preserves. They said that the contractor we have doing our maintenance is doing a great job. Thank you Woods & Wetlands!
Woods and Wetlands has been instrumental in clearing exotics from the preserve in the Cape Royal Community, bringing us into compliance with county requirements and creating a beautiful preserve. We could not be more pleased with the results.
Being a lifetime resident of Collier County, I fully understand the difficulty of finding a company that’s even interested in performing ecosystem restoration services, let alone someone who is truly qualified.
Well, my friends, your hunt is over. After an exhaustive search, I contracted with Woods and Wetlands. Not only was their pricing very competitive, but they also provided their services with a high level of surgical expertise and passion. My property looks just beautiful.
I recommend them with great enthusiasm. They work their magic for many property owners, associations, and municipal agencies in Southwest Florida. I promise you will not be disappointed.
I want to compliment your company on a job well done. You were very responsive, and the quality of work is something to be very proud of. Your crew would always stop and see if we ever needed any adjustments or just to see if we were happy with the job you were doing. Thank you for your professionalism.
I am hearing only good things about your crew and wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your company’s efforts. The team has been punctual, hardworking, flexible, and very responsive to our requests. It’s been a pleasure working with a crew as dedicated as yours, and we hope to do more business with Woods & Wetlands in the future.
We have been so pleased with the services provided by Woods & Wetlands at our Lee County project, that we engaged with them for wetlands clean-ups, maintenance, and property enhancement plantings at two of other projects in Broward County. We will certainly consider W&W for future work at any of our projects.
We thank you for your many years of dedicated service and the excellence with which our properties have been treated. You are well-know in SWFL and we appreciate your professional service.
David, I want to thank you and your great crew for the wonderful job they did clearing our property of the non-native vegetation. Thanks again so much. Terrific job!
