Todd Stone

Todd Stone

Chief Operations Officer

READ BIO

Todd has been working at True North for 14 years.  Almost immediately he fell in love with the snow removal business. He thrived in the combination of pressure, management and problem solving. He later became instrumental in bringing the Bio-centric approach of landscape maintenance to True North. This method of landscape maintenance combines laboratory testing with organic and synthetic products to maintain beautiful, sustainable landscapes. Todd seems to thrive in heart of chaos at home too, where he lives with his wife Tracy, five children and three dogs. In addition to his role as Kansas City branch manager for True North, Todd is active in serving several trade organizations including previously serving as Education Chair and Golf Chair of IFMA of KC and Education Chair of the Kansas City BEP (Built Environment Partners).

Tracy Stone

Tracy Stone

Business Unit Leader

READ BIO

Tracy joined the True North team eight years ago. After three years as the Compliance Manager she joined the sales team as the Branch Assistant. Tracy is a great problem solver. She is like a bloodhound who has caught a scent when she is engrossed in a new project. Her ability to think outside the box makes her a great asset to our sales team. Tracy is a Kansas City native who attended Center High School and Johnson County Community College. She and her husband Todd have five amazing kids and two rambunctious dogs that create chaos when the snow is not creating it for her. If she’s not working you will find her buried in a book or out in the garden.

Mark has been with us three years, but don’t let his boyish looks fool you. He is no stranger to the industry. He has toiled in the dirt and snow for more than 20 years as a landscaper, wearing many hats. He has been an owner, an account rep, a chemical guru and a salesman. We suspect some genetic mutation as he gets frothy at the mouth discussing chemicals and salt.  He is our resident “Materials Guy.” When not diligently patrolling his properties during snow events, he is coming up with new ways to keep pavement clear with different chemical formulations. He has worked at some of the largest companies in the city and country, but wanted the chance to do what he loves – provide personal care. He lives for the challenges of this industry and has a customer-centric attitude. As a K-Stater, his green thumb makes sense to all of us.  He picked up his “white” thumb years ago and that’s what drew him to True North Outdoor.

Erik Stewart joined the True North team in 2015. Erik realized a passion for beautiful landscapes and how to handle major snowfalls at a very young age.  Working in the snow and landscape industries the past 12 years he has managed a wide variety of projects, from small residential maintenance work to large year round commercial projects. Prior to coming on board, Erik worked for one of the largest landscape companies in the country managing large portfolios of business. What makes Erik proud is how a property looks and the smile on a customer’s face after a project has been completed. Erik has a strong attention to detail and finds his satisfaction when the property he is working on looks better than when he got there.
