“Craig’s experiences with leadership roles and acquisitions within the company give me confidence in his abilities to support multiple offices, managers and our arborist teams,” said Phil Snyder, vice president, East Atlantic, R/C operations. “He is a genuine, caring and savvy teammate respected by his peers and leadership, and we all look forward to seeing his future successes.”

Ritter began his career at Davey in 1996 as a trimmer at the West Philadelphia R/C office and soon after began working in plant health care and lawn care services at Davey’s King of Prussia R/C office. He then relocated to the Richmond R/C office to work in sales and in 2004 was promoted to assistant district manager at the same office. In 2008, Ritter was promoted to district manager at what was Davey’s Eastern Shore R/C office in Maryland, and in 2018, he returned to Richmond as a district manager.

Ritter is an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist®, holds a Maryland Tree Expert License and is a Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP) from the Tree Care Industry Association.
