Aquatrols – the world’s largest manufacturer of cutting-edge soil surfactants and related technologies – has promoted Southeast Territory Manager, Wes Hamm, to the position of Strategic Accounts Manager. Duncan Stewart-Orris has been hired to take Hamm’s position and will oversee Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Southern Virginia.
These changes not only reflect the company’s consistent growth within the United States, but also around the globe. Following its acquisition by Rural American Fund in 2015, Aquatrols appointed a new leadership team, streamlined operations, instituted an aggressive research and development plan, and expanded product distribution.
Hamm has been with Aquatrols since July 2017 and holds over 16 years of expertise in the turf industry.
“I have witnessed Aquatrols’ impressive growth first-hand over the past year and a half and I am excited to help the company grow further in this new role“ says Hamm.
Duncan brings over 11 years of turf experience to his new role at Aquatrols. Previously at Howard Fertilizer and chemical companies within the landscape, sports turf and golf markets, Duncan will provide a rounded perspective to customers throughout the Southeast.
“Duncan’s passion for the industry and what we do is indisputable,” says Mike Navel, Aquatrols National Sales Manager. “His unique background will help expand our team’s combined expertise within the green industry and I am excited for what he will bring to his customers in the upcoming year.”
Popular Aquatrols products include Zipline, Revolution, Dispatch, Aqueduct and a suite of complementary surfactants essential to golf course superintendents, sports turf managers, landscapers, farmers and other growers. Each solution helps optimize soil-water-plant interactions in various agronomic conditions.
