Crew Leader, Grounds Department

Guillermo Patino has worked in the Grounds department since 1991, when he started out as a seasonal employee. He was promoted to Grounds crew leader in 2009. Patino has broad expertise in landscaping, particularly in pruning trees and shrubs. 

You can see his work at the Linden Allée—he does almost all the pruning. Also, Patino is the lead employee on the team that puts outdoor lights on the large trees for Wonderland Express, a task that takes him more than 240 hours every fall.

Patino grew up in Juan Martin, Guanajuato, Mexico.
