Bryan Clayton is the CEO of GreenPal, an app that connects lawncare service providers with homeowners. Bryan tells us about his journey from $0 to $20 Million a year, and his mistakes along the way and what he wished he had done differently when it comes to launching a technology company.
Bryan has been in the lawn care industry his entire working life starting with mowing neighbor’s lawns in high school to ultimately founding Peach Tree Inc, a market leading landscape company in the southeast and growing the firm to over 125 employees. In 2013 he navigated the successful acquisition of Peach Tree to Landscapes USA a national provider of commercial landscape services. The inspiration for GreenPal is born out of the frustration Bryan observed while operating the landscape business, and how difficult it is for homeowner’s to find, schedule, and pay a reliable small lawn care professional. Bryan is charge of GreenPal’s strategic direction and growth to become the platform that powers the lawn care industry.
