Time Flies When You’re Having Fun!

In the case of Principal and Owner Mark Slichter, he has had 30 years of fun as a valuable leader of the Callander family.  Yes, I said 30 years! This is a HUGE milestone so of course we had to celebrate it!

On September 8, 1987 Mark started his first day at Callander as a Landscape Architect 1 (as he puts it “low man on the totem pole”). Within a few years Mark had quickly moved up the “corporate ladder” to Project Manager (early 90’s), Associate (late 90’s), Senior Associate (early 2000), and then Principal and Owner in 2002. It is his dedication, hard work and passion for landscape architecture that has brought him to where he is today. During these 30 years he has been the student, the teacher and now a Principal.

After months of thinking about what we should do for Mark to celebrate this accomplishment, we decided to put together a ginormous card with staff photos from 1987. Those staff members that were born after 1987 were asked to find something to contribute from that year that represents them. Within a week everyone sent in their pictures and the outcome of the card was absolutely amazing!

Mark was greeted by a fully decorated office to show our appreciation of all he has done for the CALAfam!

Congratulations on your 30 year CALAversary Mark! We are so grateful for everything you have done and continue to do for Callander.
