Did you know that Detroit was the first city to have a concrete highway? Of course, it was only one mile on Woodward Avenue, but a small start can lead to something great. It led to Michigan being the first in many transportation innovations like superhighways and painted road centerlines.

For us, we are excited about our start in Michigan. In our newest employee spotlight, we would like to introduce you to two of our new sales representatives doing great things by solving turf problems in Southeast Michigan.

Dan Shemon

Dan Shemon specializes in golf and lawn care and serves the counties of Oakland, Wayne, Washtenaw, Macomb, Livingston, Jackson, and Lenawee. Dan was a golf course superintendent for 15 years and has been a turf and ornamental sales representative for 29 years. He belongs to the Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association, Michigan Turfgrass Foundation, and the Michigan Cemetery Association.

What makes you passionate about what you do?

I love sitting down with a customer to design programs and solve their turf problems.

What do you like most about ATS?

They have a support staff like no other.

Describe a customer problem you are proud of solving:

When I walk onto a golf course green or fairway with an obvious problem, I enjoy being able to figure out the problem and make recommendations for treatment.

What’s your best turf tip?

Just because it’s brown and doesn’t look right- it’s not always a disease problem!

Joe Singles

Joe Singles specializes in golf, lawn care, and sports turf and serves the counties of Oakland, Wayne, Macomb, Huron, St. Clair, Midland, Tuscola, Genesee, Lapeer, Saginaw, Bay, Livingston, Washtenaw, Clinton, and Shiawassee. Joe studied turf management at Michigan State University and worked as a golf course superintendent for 20 years. He has been a sales representative for 6 years and is a member of the Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association and the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation.

What makes you passionate about what you do?

I enjoy helping people.

What do you like most about ATS?

They make sure the customer comes first!

Describe a customer problem you are proud of solving:

A new customer was not happy with his course conditions, so I put together a program for him. He told me that after switching to my program, his course never looked better!

What’s your best turf tip?

Keep up with your cultural practices. Be proactive, not reactive, with your fertilizer and fungicide program.
