Thane Howell - Branch Manager
Landscape Industry Since: 1997
Signature Landscape Since: 2007
Born and raised by a 3rd generation farming family in the wheat fields of western Kansas, Thane quickly developed a passion for providing for others, teamwork, and the outdoors. From a young age, Thane was part of a team focused on providing for others in the outdoors on a daily basis. Thane says, “growing up in a farming community, teamwork is an absolute. Everyone has a job/task, and we each depend on one another to reach an ultimate goal: to produce a good crop.”
After high school, Thane continued his education at Emporia State University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in recreation. While attending Emporia State, Thane met his wife Kari, and after college they moved to Olathe, Kansas. Thane’s passions for providing for others, teamwork, and the outdoors guided him to the landscape industry. Thane says, “the landscape industry is the closest environment to farming you can find in the city. It allows me to provide for others through beautiful landscapes, while working with a great team, and be outdoors.”
In 1997, Thane started his landscape career as turf applicator for a local company and continued to develop his knowledge in the industry over the next 10 years. In 2007, Thane joined the Signature Landscape team as an Account Manager, where he was able to become a trusted advisor for his clients. In 2017, Thane became a Branch Manager for Signature Landscape, where his teamwork mentality has been focused on motivating and developing a group of dedicated Account Managers, Production Managers, and technicians. Thane’s team is focused on providing for others and maximizing customer satisfaction, as well as maintaining a safe and enjoyable work environment.
Thane is married to his wonderful wife Kari, and they have 3 children, Austin, Karinne, and Kaylee. Thane enjoys spending his free time with his family and being outdoors.
