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 10 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.

Erl Horak

Yard/ Maintenance 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.

Greg VanEerde

Construction Sales

I started in the industry as a summer student with a local landscaper and my love for stone and equipment become my passion. After finishing my schooling, I moved into the masonry field where I became a mason. Years later found myself back in the landscape industry working at Whispering Pines as a crew leader. After venturing off for seven years to run my own landscape company, I am happy to once again call Whispering Pines my work home and after some 27 years landscaping is still my passion!

Grant Hagan

Construction 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.

Joshua Medemblik

Landscape 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.

Leah Brakke

Sales Assistant/ Marketing Director

Whispering Pines has been my life since the day I entered the world. I attended Niagara College and received a Horticultural Technician diploma. Over the past 10 years I have done every job possible and have settled comfortably into Construction Sales Assistant and Marketing Director.

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.

Kelly Hutchinson

Office Admin

I am the friendly voice on the other side of the phone when you call into the office. I graduated from Georgian College in Barrie with both an Advanced Diploma in Hotel and Resort Administration and Human Resources Management.

I joined the team as Executive Assistant in 2018. My education in social services opened the door to working for a local service provider.
