Then, he earned his Associates degree from North Metro Tech in Horticulture. Additionally, Scott owned his own landscaping business for 5 years before accepting a position in the commercial landscape industry in Charleston, SC. Looking for new opportunities; Scott recently joined the Phoenix team. He brings over 20 years experience to our Coastal Carolina branch.
Anthony Oliver, Area Manager (Columbia, SC)

Matt Swartzmiller, Area Manager (Coastal Carolina)
Matt’s hometown is Lugoff, SC. He started working in landscaping as a teenager. Because of Matt’s self-discipline and commitment to serving others, he worked his way up in the Landscape Industry. In 1995, he was hired as a Supervisor for Phoenix in Greenville. Matt proved to be skilled at managing his time, as he graduated from Clemson in 2000 majoring in Horticulture, while working for Phoenix. Afterward, he was promoted to an Area Manager and worked for PLM until 2002. Then, Matt opened his own landscaping business that specialized in design and installation, which he operated for 12 years. Recently, Matt was presented with the opportunity to move to our Coastal Branch. He always considered the Coast a vacation area and delighted in the fact he could be a part of that atmosphere, while working for a reputable, growing company. We are happy to welcome Matt back to the Phoenix Family!
