Ron Claassen was originally a math teacher in Calgary, Alberta, for 15 years before relocating to Orlando and taking a job in project management for BrightView. Now, Claassen supervises the Orlando Branch of BrightView Landscape Development, where he and his team installed all of the horizontal landscapes and more for a new Four Seasons resort inside the grounds of Walt Disney World. The team faced multiple challenges along the way, but was able to overcome them all with teamwork and a network of service providers.
