2020 Horticultural Industry Leadership Awards – Lyndsi Oestmann

“A leader is someone who demonstrates what’s possible. ” – Mark Yarnell American Author

Loma Vista Nursery President Lyndsi Oestmann grew up in the nursery business, and she’s become the embodiment of a true industry leader. Lyndsi has been awarded a 2020 Horticultural Industry Leadership Award from Nursery Management. Read it here:  https://www.nurserymag.com/ 

“She’s a hands-on visual learner,” Loma Vista Nursery founder and Lyndsi’s dad, Mark Clear, told the publication. “I was always more into the growing side of the business and she was managing our two distribution sites. She came in and found areas that needed improvement and executed those changes. She did it by building a good team. She’s got the team concept down pat.”

Lyndis’s ability to stay nimble keeps the company strong. Planning, she says, helps navigate her team through challenges.

From donating time with numerous industry organizations to investing in developing future generations of professionals, Lyndsi truly leads by example.

Through the years, she says, “I tended to approach change like ‘just grab the bull by the horns and just do it.’ But I’ve learned that I need to slow down a bit and respect how others react to change. It’s important to have lots of communication during changes, really, over communication in this case, to have complete transparency and buy-in. Because nothing works without buy-in
