FOCAL POINTE OUTDOOR SOLUTIONS CELEBRATES 10 YEARS, REPORTS REMARKABLE GROWTH, ADDS BENES TO LEADERSHIP TEAM

CASEYVILLE, ILL., December 29, 2008... Over the last ten years, Focal Pointe Outdoor Solutions has carved out a niche in the local market for catering to the landscaping, and lawn care needs of clients in both the residential and commercial markets.  During these tough economic times, when many luxury services are struggling,Focal Pointe is wrapping up its anniversary year on a high note by demonstrating remarkable growth.  

According to company president, John Munie, Focal Pointe will finish the year up 67% over last year’s sales numbers, capping a five year run in which the company has seen their revenues grow by an average of 55% per year.  When asked to explain the secret formula, Munie simply stated: “Trust.”  “Our success has always been built on a foundation of trust between our clients and staff.  We view our clients as partners and the value we add for them is something we take very serious.  When a prospect becomes a ‘partner’ we take ownership of their property and treat it as if it were our own, both from an appearance perspective and financial perspective.  When customers know in their gut that you care about them, on a personal level, business becomes a lot easier.”

Their philosophy has attracted a high-end market that may not be as affected by the economic down turn.  The St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis University, the St. Louis Art Museum, the Desco Group, and Holland Construction Services are some of their more notable commercial clients and their residential customer list, reads like a local Who’s Who directory for the bi-state area.

Munie says that the company’s growth has prompted the recent addition of Adam Benes to Focal Pointe’s staff.  Benes will serve as partnership executive, helping foster client relationships, increase Focal Pointe’s involvement in the community, and oversee their marketing initiatives.  “It’s exciting to be part of a company where the primary focus is on taking care of the customers.  I’ve known John since his first year in business and have watched this company grow into his vision.  It’s really a remarkable success story, and I’m excited to see what I can contribute.”

A resident of O’Fallon, Mo., Benes brings to Focal Pointe former sales and management experience as well as skills he acquired while generating revenue and forming corporate sponsorships for a youth baseball facility in Little Rock, Ark.  “Adam’s track record is strong and he comes from a winning family with Midwest values.”  Munie added, “He fits in so naturally with our culture, it’s hard to imagine a better fit.”

landscape design, installation & maintenance, irrigation management, pool and spa maintenance, outdoor lighting, and weekly gardening.  For more information about Focal Pointe Outdoor Solutions, please call 618-398-9000 or visit them online at www.fplandcare.com.
