President, Park West Landscape Management
Dustin grew up in Southern California and earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Degree from Chapman University in 1997. While at Chapman, Dustin was the captain of the varsity soccer team and led the Panthers to the Final Four Championship in Williams, Massachusetts.
Today, Dustin is President of Park West Landscape Management, an industry leading landscape management company. He got his start in landscape maintenance as a gardener at the nation’s largest landscape maintenance provider shortly after he graduated in 1997. Within three years Dustin moved up the ranks to an account manager role working on some of the highest profile landscape jobs in Southern California – Angel’s Stadium and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library.
Dustin was quickly recruited by Park West where he was promoted to President within three years of being hired. Since taking the reins at Park West in 2005, Dustin has grown the company from 250 to 675 employees and the annual revenue from $12 million to $35 million. Dustin is proud of Park West’s commitment to customer service, quality of workmanship and the Firm’s work throughout Southern California- encompassing Los Angeles County, Orange County, the Inland Empire and San Diego County.
During his free time, Dustin enjoys spending time with his wife Erica and their three children, Kennedy, Jackson and Reagan. He coaches his son’s soccer team, fits in a little golf and continues to play competitive soccer.
Dustin also enjoys supporting Chapman University, which is always somewhat of a family affair. Like Dustin, his wife Erica, his father David and his cousin Gabriel Ortiz, are also proud Chapman alumni. Go Panthers!
