Management Team Bios

Sean Cashman, President

Sean Cashman founded Cashman Landscape Management and Design Inc., in 1996 with a simple philosophy – to provide a quality product at a fair price.  Sean started in the Green Industry in 1987, working for a high end residential and commercial landscape management firm. Quickly running through the ranks Mr. Cashman, a passionate individual, could not be held to just working “for” someone. He needed to control his own destiny, beginning over 20 years ago, Sean started with 1 employee and went from running a mower to running a crew to running multiple crews to running a corporation –this experience is the cornerstone upon which Cashman Landscape Management and Design has been built.  Today, Sean is responsible for overall operations of each division, sales and corporate development.   Cashman Landscape Management has come to be known for its quality workmanship and ethical standards, which can be directly attributed to its founder.  As Cashman Landscape Management enters our third decade of service, Sean will continue to lead the vision first started in 1996 with his first truck and trailer.  Mr. Cashman holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Seton Hall University.

Sean puts a great a great deal of time into his companies, however more importantly when he gets time, he loves playing tennis and golf. His passion overall is spending time with his two children whether its coaching, relaxing at the beach in LBI or just enjoying times at his home in Denville.
