FieldTurf has added Roger Yago to its network of sales representatives. Roger will be based in Colorado and will represent FieldTurf as regional sales manager in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. Roger's extensive experience in sales, marketing, customer service and athletics makes him a great fit with the world's leading and most innovative sports surfacing company.
The growing demand for the FieldTurf product and the need to continue to properly service clients has led to an expansion in FieldTurf's sales and customer service personnel.
