Turf Magazine Strengthens Editorial Team with Wisniewski and Cuddihe


ST. JOHNSBURY, VT -Turf, including Landscape & Hardscape Design-Build, has added two highly experienced and recognizable green industry veterans, Nicole Wisniewski and Rick Cuddihe, to its team of regular editorial contributors.

Nicole Wisniewski will debut her "Unfinished Business" column in the November 2011 issue, where she will highlight business tips for landscape contractors. Wisniewski, with 15 years of journalism experience and 40 magazine and industry writing awards to her credit, is one of the leading journalists in the green industry and the former editor-in-chief of two landscape contractor magazines.

Wisniewski currently serves as senior project manager, corporate communications and marketing for The Davey Tree Expert Company. In her spare time, she also pens a green industry and gardening blog called "My Big Green Pen" at www.mybiggreenpen.com.

Rick Cuddihe's monthly "Contractors' Column" premiered in the October issue of Turf. Few professionals can match Cuddihe's 30-year career in property maintenance where he puts that knowledge to work as principle in his Lafayette Property Maintenance company. Cuddihe is an American Society of Business Publication Editors award-winning columnist.

Cuddihe, a PLANET trailblazer and frequent contributor to PLANET publications, is president of Lafayette Consulting where he works with senior industry executives to improve their operations, productivity, fleet management, safety, business development and acquisition activity.

"We're honored to welcome Nicole's and Rick's contributions to our publication," says Turf Editor-in-Chief Ron Hall. "Alongside our staffers Amy Hill and Brooke Rockwell, we believe we have the depth of editorial experience and knowledge to serve our subscribers extremely well."

Founded in 1988, Turf, including Landscape & Hardscape Design-Build, is the only national publication serving landscape contractors that also offers four regional editions. The magazine is the industry's 2011 advertising leader according to market share tracking firm, IMS.
