THE 2019 KICKSTART CONTEST WINNER

Congratulations to this year’s Kickstart Contest winner, Jeff Rausch of Daybreaker Landscapes. His drive, clear vision for his business’ future, his ability to persevere through challenges, and his eagerness to further learn and grow each aspect of his business are what set him apart.

A BIT ABOUT JEFF

After serving in the U.S. Air Force for four years, Jeff started Daybreaker Landscapes. “I started this business with no capital, no equipment — just a company name, a dream to be my own boss, and a strong desire for success.” Since then, he has expanded more toward the design, build, and installation side of the business.

WHAT HE’S WON

As the grand prize winner, Jeff will be taking home:

  • A six-month lease on any CASE compact track loader (CTL) paired with a CASE laser grading box with SiteControl.
  • A year of business consulting with Ken Thomas and Ben Gandy of Envisor Consulting.
  • A full set of (6) Crusader Hammer Tools by Pave Tech, Inc.
  • Fleet management consultation.
  • Custom-branded CASE apparel for staff.
  • Passes to GIE+EXPO 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky.

“Finding reliable employees. It’s no secret that there is a labor shortage in our industry. As such, I have to start being more creative in how I find employees. I also have to come up with good ways to retain the good ones once I have them. Training is always a concern as well.”

“[Grading] can be tricky to get right and often requires experience to perfect. Incorporating technology and the right equipment, such as the laser grading box, can make this task far easier. Now your operator requires less experience, expanding your potential pool of employees.”

AND THE RUNNER-UP IS…

Diane Ramos of Earthly Designs & Resources, Inc. A complete landscape grounds maintenance contractors company located in the Palm Beach County, Florida. She’ll receive:

  • Tailored Q&A learning session via webinar with Envisor Consulting
  • CASE fleet management consultation
