These opportunities include hands-on work as rotating crew members in the residential maintenance, commercial maintenance, design/build, and irrigation departments. Many enjoy the chance to work outdoors and to create a unique environment for each client’s property.

Many former interns have become senior-level Associates, such as Tom Bolas, who started as an intern 31 years ago after completing his Landscape Architecture Degree. He is the General Manager and Vice President of James Martin Associates.

“James Martin Associates has allowed me to experience many different aspects of the industry,” Bolas said. He initially started as a design build foreman and then managed the design build department. In preparation for his general management role, JMA supported furthering his education through an MBA. He now manages the commercial maintenance and snow departments.

“Recently I have even been given the opportunity to become Manager of the recently acquired Schwake Stone. JMA has helped me grow tremendously in my career,” Bolas said.
