Professional Facilities Rep

He attended Mesa State College. He is the father of four boy ages 15, 13, 12 and 12 and married to his wife Jennie for 17 years. Phil loves the sports turf industry and cannot imagine working in any other industry. He would love to serve as your representative.
Vision for STMA:
My vision for the STMA is to see the continued growth of membership and a continued push to educate non-members on turf. I would also like to see turf managers become more eco friendly. I would also like to see the STMA expand worldwide.
