Kerchner appointed as Ewing Northeast/Mid-Atlantic regional manager

As Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply further expands its geographic reach and service areas into the northeastern United States, the nation’s largest family-owned distributor of landscape and water management is also growing its northeastern leadership. Phil Kerchner has joined Ewing as the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager.

“Ewing’s Eastern Division is poised for growth, not just in this area, but also growing our family of employees. I’m confident in Phil’s ability to help us extend Ewing’s quality service and robust product offerings to new customers,” said Tom Childers, Ewing’s Eastern Division Vice President.

Kerchner has more than 35 years in the green industry, most of which supported growth and operational efforts along the east coast. He will be aiding Ewing’s expansion efforts, from selecting and opening locations, hiring teams, developing Ewing’s awareness and working closely with the Ewing Rain Bird Golf team in the area. Kerchner’s region expands from Virginia to Maine.

Most recently, Kerchner served as the Business Development Director at Vista Professional Outdoor Lighting. His role there was to find new market opportunities and support the individual District Sales Managers in the eastern U.S.

Prior to Vista, Kerchner was with John Deere Landscapes for 14 years, most recently serving as their Regional Vice President. Kerchner earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Forestry from West Virginia University.
