A Short Story About A Long Journey

In the winter of 1978, there came a blizzard of historic proportions which, for three days and three nights, froze Indianapolis, Indiana. I made a promise to myself that just as soon as that snow cleared out so would I. I arrived in Tucson on August 19th of that same year. I soon got a job at Dorado Country Club on the golf course maintenance crew where I became proficient in all facets of golf course maintenance. In 1980, I took a course with the Pima County Adult Vocational Training Program and became a Certified Turf Grass Manager and was promoted to Assistant Superintendent. I held this position for three and a half years, when, in 1984, I took a job as Irrigation Supervisor on a multi-million dollar landscaping project for Saudi Arabian Landscape Company (SALCO) in Najran, Saudi Arabia.

This was an experience of a lifetime as I supervised a crew of over forty multi-nationals from all over the Middle-East and Asia.

When I returned to Tucson in 1986, I realized that I had completed a task which few folks, in this town, have ever attempted, including falling off the back of a camel.

However, I wasn’t as knowledgeable in the everyday operation of a business. So I took jobs with a few major landscape companies in Tucson learning how each managed books, billings, bids etc. Then, in 1991, I set out on my own and founded Acme Irrigation Company.
