Arvesta Turf and Ornamental Adds to Sales and Technical Staff

In an effort to achieve growth in the turf and ornamental markets, Arvesta Corporation has announced the addition of several new regional sales and technical service representatives.

"Increasing our presence significantly in the turf and ornamental markets reflects our commitment to growth and delivering products that meet the needs of our customers," said Arvesta president and CEO Elin Miller.

David Baker, Lee Rogers and Brett Rush have been named sales representatives for Arvesta's turf and ornamental (T&O) group; Doug Houseworth joins as T&O technical service representative. All will report to Arvesta T&O Business Manager Bill Liles.

Baker will manage Southwest and Far West regional sales. He most recently served as sales representative for Agrivert, Inc., a sister company of Arvesta, selling Nutricote fertilizer and a portfolio of “green” products. Prior to working with Agrivert, Baker was in nursery production and sales at a leading horticultural distribution center.

Rogers assumes sales responsibilities for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic areas. Prior to joining Arvesta, Rogers worked in sales for Agrivert focusing on Nutricote sales. He also worked at Nichimen Corporation, a legacy company of Arysta LifeScience, parent of Arvesta.

Rush will cover the Midwest sales region for Arvesta T&O. Most recently, he served as director of development for the College of Agriculture at Purdue University. Prior to that, he was in turf chemical sales for the Anderson's and Novartis.
