Celebration, Florida, United States: Rapid sales growth across the United States market has prompted Capillary Concrete to boost its team of representatives serving American clients.
Three new hires have significantly increased the ability of the company which prides itself as the global leader in bunker and turf management to support clients across the United States.
Greg Nichols is Capillary Concrete’s new Sales and Installation Manager for the Northeast of America, and also covers Florida. Nichols, originally from upstate New York, graduated from SUNY Canton and has been in the golf course construction industry working with architects, contractors and superintendents specialising in bunker maintenance products since 2007. He is based in Tequestra, Florida.
Mark Patterson, Sales and Installation Manager for the Southeast, lives in Alpharetta, Georgia, just north of Atlanta. He is a 30-year veteran of the golf industry, working as a superintendent and a director of golf and grounds at many different clubs.
Patterson holds a BS degree in plant and soil sciences from Mississippi State University and has built several high profile clubs in the southeast, including Champions Retreat Golf Club in Augusta where he was director of construction and superintendent.
With more than 24 years in the turf industry, Scott Grego’s love for golf began when he worked for his uncle on Dundee Golf Course in Michigan as a teen. This led him to his turfgrass management degree at Michigan State. His internship led him to Dominion Country Club in San Antonio and eventually he became superintendent of the golf course.
After seven years, he transitioned into the sales industry selling chemicals, fertilisers and equipment, leading to his recent appointment at Capillary Concrete’s Sales and Installation Manager for the Central US.
“Our growth and future projections have provided us the opportunity to hire a leading sales staff to match our leading bunker liner and turfgrass management applications. We are excited to bring the team together to make another huge impact for us in the near future,” said Travis Chivers, Operations Manager for Capillary Concrete, an Associate Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
