Barenbrug USA Appoints Micah Gould as Turf Product Manager
(Tangent, OR) Barenbrug USA has appointed Micah Gould as the Product Manager
for the professional turf sector. As Product Manager, Gould will provide technical and sales support for Barenbrug USA’s network of professional turf distributors. Additionally, he will be heavily involved in research and development to continue Barenbrug’s goal of bringing new and innovative products to the U.S. turf market. Sales Manager, Jay Ingham comments, “We are very excited to welcome Micah to Barenbrug. He brings a vast knowledge of turfgrass along with an understanding of the industry.”
Gould earned his B.S. in Horticulture, Turf Management at Oregon State University under Dr. Alec Kowalewski.
