Douglas York


President's Corporate Award

Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) is pleased to announce Douglas W. York, president and CEO of Ewing Irrigation Products as the recipient of the 2013 President’s Corporate Award. Mr. York oversees operations for more than 195 branch locations in 21 US states.

Ewing has been instrumental in furthering education on integrated water management—an extremely important topic at a time when water conservation and water quality are of increasing concern. Ewing has sponsored the development of GRHC and the American Society of Irrigation Consultants’ four professional training courses on Integrated Water Management for Buildings and Sites.

Mr. York represents Ewing throughout the green and wholesale distribution industries, and works to keep the company actively engaged in shaping policy surrounding water scarcity issues at the local, state and federal levels. He is committed to providing industry-leading education programs, and guiding Ewing in its mission to serve as a comprehensive water management solutions provider and active supporter of local and national water management and conservation initiatives.

Mr. York has served Ewing in a variety of capacities, including branch management, regional management, sales, new facilities construction, accounting, human resources, marketing and acquisition management. He has previously served as the president of the Irrigation Association (2007) and the International Association of Plastics Distributors (2003), and formerly served as an executive board member for the Arizona Landscape Contractors Association. GRHC would like to thank Mr. York for his contribution to the industry.
