Tony Atchison will serve as Arysta LifeScience’s new territory sales manager for the southwest region, the company announced January 18, 2012. The southwest region includes Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
Atchison brings more than 12 years of turf business experience to the position, having served as a golf course superintendent and turf equipment and chemical sales associate. Atchison also earned his associate degree in golf course and turf management from Grayson County Community College and maintains his pesticide applicator license.
“Tony has a unique set of skills and experiences that will certainly benefit our customers,” says Dale Chaney, head of U.S. sales including turf and ornamental at Arysta LifeScience.
“As our portfolio continues to grow and we prepare for the launch of a new product, it’s imperative we add members to the team who understand what our customers are up against. Tony is tuned into what superintendents are looking for and how they operate. We’re happy to have him on board.”
