Joseph Imszennik Appointed Facilities Manager at Temple Ambler

With 20 years of facilities management under his belt — many of those years at prestigious golf courses throughout the region and five years at Temple’s Main Campus  — Joseph Imszennik has been involved in all aspects of keeping facilities running at peak efficiency. He is now turning those skills and attention to detail toward Temple Ambler as the campus’ new Facilities Manager.

Ask someone what scares them and plants probably aren’t the first things that come to mind. They likely don’t even crack the top 10. A visit to the Ambler Campus Greenhouse, however, shows that the thriving foliage isn’t all pretty flowers and sun-dappled leaves. The Greenhouse — and in some cases the Ambler Arboretum —  provides a perfect home for an eclectic group of carnivorous plants, spiny cacti of every shape and size and species that are a great deal more bizarre.
