Meet Our CEO

Terry Shaffer was born and raised in the Kansas City area, and his landscaping career started with his summer lawn mowing gig in the late 1980s. By the time he was in his third year of business school at the University of Kansas, his lawn maintenance client list was so long that he didn’t have time to keep up with school. Along with co-founder Brett Black, he turned his attention full-time to his landscaping business, which grew into the Summit Lawn and Landscape we know today.

Terry believes hard work always pays off, and he approaches every job in a spirit of gratitude. He wants both his clients and his employees to have a great experience with Summit, and he has worked to develop a positive, supportive culture within the company. As a Kansas City native, he’s proud of the community and the four children he has raised here with his wife of 27 years, and he’s happy to give back.
