Director

Jerry Simon

Jerry Simon is the Business Development Manager for BrightView Landscape Services, representing the Mid-Atlantic Region, Southern Virginia Team.

"I have been in the landscape industry for 23 years and integral partner of the SOVA team. I have been recognized as a team lead, have many credentials as a Top 10 sales producer with over 14 years in the top tier platform, I enjoy selling well versed horticulture.

Looking back, I have always had a passion for gardening and being outdoors. I believe my landscape career started in my youth, growing up with ‘Granny’, teaching me her intricate plant palate, working in the vegetable garden together, beside her with our hands in the dirt. She instilled in me the landscape integrity for who I am today.

I have worked with CAI and been a business supplier/partner, sponsor, contributor, and participated in many CAI functions during my landscape tenure. This is my first year as a board member. I look forward to serving and providing leadership in this role.

The future is bright for the CVC-CAI organization and its great leaders."
