BioSafe Systems Rewards and Solidifies its Sales Team
BioSafe Systems is making moves to strengthen its specialty crop protection product sales force. The East Hartford, CT-based manufacturer of biodegradable disease-control products for the horticulture industry has announced two recent promotions: Jeff Kline from Market Segment Manager to Vice President of Sales for Agriculture and Professional Products; and Eric Smith to East Coast Sales Manager for Turf & Ornamental markets.
In addition, the company has welcomed Max Gilley as its new Technical Sales Representative for Turf & Ornamentals in California.
Kline has been working with the company since early 2007. In this new role, he will be responsible for strategic planning and marketing. He has already been in integral part of ZeroTol broad-spectrum bactericide/fungicide’s success in the horticulture industry.
In the past two and a half years at Biosafe, Eric Smith has successfully grown his territory, gained product knowledge and built strong relationships with our distribution networks. Eric will work with the team to promote and support sustainable solutions in turf and greenhouse/nursery industries.
Gilley grew up in Jefferson City, MO, and attended the University of Missouri where he earned his B.S. degree in Plant Sciences with an emphasis in Turf Management. He then went on to Mississippi State where he received a M.S. degree in Plant Pathology.
Prior to joining BioSafe Systems, he worked for two years as a product development scientist.
