Adam Sartin went to the University of Arkansas with a career in mind: He wanted to work in organizational leadership and business consulting. But after graduating with a degree in business management, he took a different route and instead went into the lawn care industry.
At first, he operated all the services provided by Sartin Services Lawncare & Nursery Inc., his father's company. After several years, he decided to purchase one of the divisions and became the president of that new company: Ground Crew LLC, a mowing, irrigation, maintenance and Christmas decor business.
"When you can manage people successfully, it doesn't matter what you do--you can be successful at it," Sartin said about his management strategy. "If we have great employees and if those employees take care of our customers, those customers will continue to do business with us."
He manages about 20 employees and has also earned his MBA.
Sartin is also heavily involved in the community. He is a CASA advocate, secretary and membership chair for the local Rotary Club where he was previously named Rookie of the Year and a board member and quality of life committee member for the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce.
