Clintar founder Bob Wilton dies
Bob Wilton, well-known and respected in the landscaping and snow removal professions, passed away in September following a battle with cancer. He founded Clintar Landscape Management in 1973, a company that grew to become one of the largest landscape management brands in Canada. Throughout his career, Wilton worked alongside peers and competitors in a collective effort to direct and protect the industry. His involvement in trade organizations made him exceptionally respected in his field, earning multiple lifetime achievement awards.
Wilton was one of the founders of the Landscape Ontario Snow and Ice Management Sector Group, which has been instrumental in dealing with risk management issues through the Standard Form Contract, the Contractor Rating System and the successful effort to reduce the statute of limitations from seven to two years.
