Greenkeeper turns sales rep
By Susan Meeken
Twenty-three years' experience of golf greenkeeping make Mark Leman ideally suited for his new role as an Area Sales Representative with turf machinery specialists Campey Turf Care Systems.
Mark will have responsibility for an area that includes the south west of England, the south Midlands, South Wales and Ireland.
For the previous nine years, Mark has been Course Manager at the prestigious Henbury Golf Club near Bristol, so he fully appreciates the demanding workload of modern turf professionals and the need for high work-rate equipment.
Away from work, Mark's hobbies include motor cycling, snooker and - not surprisingly - golf.
Campey Turf Care Systems is a distributor for some of the most respected grounds care machinery manufacturers in the UK, Europe and the US. Equipment available includes the Koro range of sports turf renovation machinery, designed to rejuvenate worn pitches quickly and without undue reliance on man-made chemicals. Also offered are the versatile range of Dakota Turf Tender top-dressers and the TurfWorks International Amenity Management System, a greens maintenance system which transforms greens mowers into versatile turf care machines.
Campeys also supply specialised machines built and marketed under the Raycam name. These include the Hi-Lift trailer, Core Harvester, Speedressers and Rubber Dragmats.
