Bobby W. Byrd
The Byrd’s Group was founded by Bobby W. Byrd in 1980 and currently serves as President. Prior to establishing The Byrd’s Group, Mr. Byrd enjoyed a 15 year career as a public servant for the City of Charlotte’s Fire Department. It was during his tenure as a public servant his strong work ethic, commitment and integrity became the values he lived by.
As a rookie firefighter, Mr. Byrd knew he had several options; he could fulfill his obligation as an employee, or he could take advantage of the opportunity and excel. Mr. Byrd chose to excel as a firefighter -- he invested time and worked diligently to achieve the goal. After much effort and many promotions, Mr. Byrd became the youngest firefighter to earn the title of Battalion Chief.
In the last 50 years, Mr. Byrd’s passion for success has not diminished. From his childhood growing up on a farm in eastern North Carolina, to his years as a public servant, his entrepreneurial leadership, unquenchable passion and intuitive vision have been the motivating forces behind the success of The Byrd’s Group as leader in the Green Industry.
Bobby L. Byrd
Bobby L. Byrd accepted a position with The Byrd's Group in 1983 after deciding a career within the automotive industry was not his passion. He worked as a landscape laborer for six months before being promoted to a foreman where he served in the renovation department until 1986. His passion, motivation and attention to detail have enabled him to benefit from the many opportunities made available by The Byrd's Group.
In the Spring of 1987 Bobby expanded his horticultural resume by adding landscape & irrigation design. This attribute has enabled The Byrd's Group to expand their product line over the years to focus on delivering great landscape solutions for their clients.
Bobby is licensed in North Carolina as a Landscape Contractor, Irrigation Contractor, and is a Certified Plant Professional. He is responsible for marketing, sales, and financial oversight.
