Darrin Braun

Sales and Business Development

Darrin grew up in the green industry. He ran his first full sized excavator at age 12, was on a crew at 15 and acquired a CDL at 21.

Most recently, business development in hardscape product sales was Darrin’s primary focus. In addition, he was responsible for developing and managing company wide ICPI & NCMA industry certification training which educated almost 500 individuals.

Serving others is in Darrin’s nature and he has been actively involved with growing and developing our industry through local and national associations such as the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association (WLCA), Wisconsin Nursery & Landscape Association (WNLA) the and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) and the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA).

When not at work Darrin enjoys spending time with his wife Lynn and three young children Sawyer, Connor and Sierra. They frequently go on adventures where the whole family rides for (or is hauled) 20 miles. As a former Pro/Semi pro mountain bike racer Darrin knows what it takes to complete the difficult tasks needed to get to a win! Find him on Strava and you will see he enjoys his 4am wake up call to go for a ride.

A personal cause that is near and dear to Darrin’s heart is to raise awareness and hope for families who are affected by ALS (Think Ice Bucket Challenge). He and his family created the ALS Steps for Hope fundraiser that has raised almost $50,000 since inception in 2012.
