Your Point of Contact

Greg Wildeboer

CEO/ Owner

After graduating from Ridgetown College in 1993 with an Ornamental Horticulture diploma, I set out to establish my mark in the industry. Whispering Pines was created and since then I have been provided the opportunity to work with exceptional clients and dedicated vendors, while developing a team of loyal staff.

Melissa Brouwer

General Manager

Since beginning my career at Whispering Pines over 15 years ago I have developed a strong passion for flowers and the outdoors. I attended Niagara College and received a Horticulture Technician diploma. I love a challenge and moved from labourer to operations to management. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends in the beautiful outdoors.

Kelly Hutchinson

Human Resource Manager

I joined the WPL team in 2018 as the Office Administrator. Whispering Pines’ strong reputation in the community and workplace culture is what drew me to the company. I am passionate about helping employees with growth and development, and the overall health & safety of our team. I am proud to live and work in the Orangeville community. Outside of work, I am kept busy with my kid’s extra curricular activities and enjoy snowmobiling and attending concerts!

Andrew Westrik

Sales Manager / Landscape Sales

I am passionate about building relationships! I graduated from the University of Guelph with an B.Sc. Hons. and am proud to call Guelph home. From the tender age of 11 I was actively building relationships with neighbours and providing lawn and garden services. Prior to joining the Whispering Pines team, I spent many years within the Education industry helping schools and school districts foster and build leadership culture. With over 20 years of business development and relationship management experience, I now lead the sales activities at Whispering Pines Landscaping. I enjoy the outdoors (lakeside in the Kawartha regions is ideal) and derive much pleasure in our large, backyard vegetable garden.

Chad Critchley

Construction Sales

I am elated to have joined the Whispering Pines Family in February of 2023, after many years of working along side them as a freelance designer. It brings me great pride to now see the entire landscape development process come to fruition, while working for an industry leader as a member of the sales team. I am an honours graduate from Humber college in the Landscape Design Technologies program and possess over 30 years of experience in the design and construction field. Born and raised in Bolton, Ontario, I now have called Orangeville home for the past 20 years. I have two brilliant and loving kids whom I love to adventure with. I am passionate about snowboarding, mountain biking, skateboarding, camping, soccer, volleyball and spending time with kids, family, and friends.

Joshua Medemblik

Construction Sales

My passion for Landscaping started at a young age helping with the maintenance at my parents property, which translated into a small landscape and snow removal business with my brothers. After school I started working for a local landscape business and in 2017 I joined the Whispering Pines team. I am thrilled to be part of the team providing world class landscape construction and maintenance to all our wonderful clients. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, enjoying the great outdoors and playing golf.

Erl Horak

Fleet & Operations Manager

Since joining the WPL team in 2009 I have moved from Lawn Maintenance Foreman to Maintenance Operations Manager and Equipment Manager. I am proud to have been a part of growing the company and helping to develop policies and procedures as part of the Management Team. I was born and raised on a farm in the Orangeville area and have 16 years experience in the automotive industry before joining WPL. In my free time, I am passionate about maintaining my own property, enjoying the great outdoors, and playing hockey.

Grant Hagan

Construction Operations Manager

My landscape career started as a labourer with Whispering Pines 24 years ago. After 6 years of employment and working my way up to crew leader, I moved on to start my own landscape construction business. After 17 years of operating my own business I am thrilled to be back with Whispering Pines as the construction manager.

Kelsey Greaves

Sales Assistant

I am happy to have joined the Whispering Pines team as the Sales Assistant. I have many years of administrative experience working in a law firm, as well as sales support experience working with a small real estate team. I am excited to be a part of the WPL team and am dedicated in providing support to the sales team and all the amazing clients we serve! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, and doing anything crafty!

Marianne Horak

Financial Admin

I joined the team at WPL in 2016 as Financial Administrator. With 25 years of experience owning my own retail business, I have been able to help in developing financial processes, securing vendors and materials, and managing inventory. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, exercising, and entertaining family and friends.

Danielle Degroot

Executive Assistant

I joined the team as Executive Assistant in 2018. My education in social services opened the door to working for a local service provider. This role gradually developed and expanded to include assisting management with admin tasks. My experience with payroll, invoices, and databases is a great fit for the team at WPL.


Office Dog

Whispering Pines Landscaping has been a huge part of Charlie's life. Both of Charlies' parents work at Whispering Pines and he has settled in nicely to an office dog role. He will greet you at the front door when you arrive and expects a nice little pat. Charlie can be found napping in a spot of sunlight or making his rounds through the offices.
