Division Manager, Landscape Division
Edgar Martinez joined Griffith Company in 2014 as an Intern for our Landscape Division. He transitioned into a full-time Project Engineer the same year after graduating from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Edgar was able to add value to the Landscape Division based on his prior experience working in his family’s commercial landscape business. In 2016, Edgar assumed the roles of Project Manager and Estimator for the Landscape Division. All of Edgar’s work eventually earned him the position of Assistant Division Manager in 2019. After the departure of the previous Landscape Division Manager, Edgar was forced to accelerate his growth as a manager of people and the business. His outstanding work in managing and growing the profitability of the Landscape Division ultimately led to his promotion as Division Manager in July 2020.
In addition to his work for our Landscape Division, Edgar has been in involved in the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of California since 2015. In 2019 Edgar stepped up his involvement in the organization by joining the SoCal AGC Construction Leadership Council (CLC) Committee. Edgar has also honed and contributed his leadership abilities by participating in the Caltrans Landscape and Erosion Control annual committee since 2018.
