leadership and experience

Meet the President

Melissa Huizinga, President of Greentek, has had a lifelong appreciation for hard work and the great outdoors. Melissa’s earliest horticulture and arboriculture experiences, molding her into a tree expert, date back to her childhood. Growing up on 17 acres of wooded property and farmland, she spent many hours outside working and enjoying nature.

Throughout high school, college, and grad school, Melissa was able to draw business and operational experience by working in the field, with customers, and in management. These opportunities provided a springboard for learning the tools of the trade and the behind-the-scenes technical and business knowledge needed to be successful in starting and operating Greentek years later.

In early 2009, Melissa procured a federal tree maintenance contract for the US Army in Arborworks, LLC, a separate business she co-founded. Subsequent and repeat contracts were won from other federal agencies, municipalities, and commercial entities, giving Huizinga opportunity to lead the development of a safe and steady workforce as a TCIA Accredited Utility Contractor in the vegetation management space. Huizinga founded Greentek Services in 2015 as a landscaping company doing subcontracting work for other companies. In 2019, Greentek began working in California, providing a variety of services in the vegetation management space.

In her role, Huizinga works closely with both field and administrative teams to ensure they have the strategies and resources to operate effectively and efficiently. Recognizing that strong leadership starts at the top, Huizinga’s daily mission is to serve, lead, and motivate her team to embrace the company's core values while providing safe and quality operations that surpass client expectations.
