Michael Palermo became a part of the Walker Supply team in March of 2017 with the acquisition of Turf Trade. Michael has been in the green industry since 1989, starting out working for a local landscaping company in the Norristown area. In 1998, he became a certified spray technician for J Bill Landscaping and Irrigation, focusing on making residential and commercial lawns look their very best. After 7 years of pulling a hose and snow plowing, he decided that it was just time to use his brains, not his brawn. A job opening came available at LESCO, and he began his sales career in June of 2005. He has taken that opportunity and ran with it! From the existing customer base that was already in place and the many close personal relationships with other lawn care companies, it was a perfect fit. Working together with a golf sales rep in the Philadelphia area, the sales grew and grew. “Looking back, it was the best thing that happened to me, career wise. The same hustle and drive that I used to get jobs done, translated into a very rewarding feeling of success. My goal as a Territory Manager is to give every customer, no matter how big or small, the same level of customer service that they deserve!” Outside of his position as Territory Manger, Michael enjoys using his free time to play golf, anywhere and everywhere! He loves spending time with his children, Morgan and Michael, his lovely fiancée Fanci, and his two grandchildren, Marcus and Mia. Michael greatly enjoys vacations, especially the bright lights of Las Vegas and the beaches of the Jersey Shore.
