Justin Pennix

Account Manager

Justin is a vital part of our operation and has multiple responsibilities including Sales and Production Manager of The Grounds Guys of Canton. He started working on the crews in 2012 and has worked his way into management. Justin and his wife Samantha are blessed with a beautiful daughter. Growing up in the south Justin has brought many hobbies with him to Stark County including fishing, hunting, and anything to do with mud including trucks, 4 wheelers, and RC’s.

We have been very fortunate to have Justin a part of our team and the only issues we have is when him and Dan (owner) sneak away to go fishing instead of working!
