Team

Another reason architects and installers love working
with TurfBond is our people.

Carl Powell

Chairman

As Chairman of the Board of Directors of TurfBond, LLC, I work closely with the executive management team to set the overall strategic direction of the company.  I believe strongly in developing strategic plans based upon the company’s strengths and market opportunities and determining actionable and measurable steps to achieve the goals of the plan.  My focus since becoming Chairman of the Board has been to fully utilize the strong innovative capabilities of our executive team to produce superior products with strong return on investment potential.  I believe strongly in growth through strategic collaborations.

Larry Ridgeway

President

My job is all about relationships: with our customers, with our suppliers, and perhaps most importantly, with our employees.

I am constantly working to create a work environment where our employees can thrive.  While the average tenure in America is 4.2 years, many of our employees have been with our company for over 5 years.  Our team is exceptional; they truly are the reason for our success.

Turfbond’s drive for excellence and innovation is guided by our customers’ needs.  Our customers’ successes are our successes; we strive to provide them with the highest quality product, often with tight deadlines.  We take pride in our workmanship and innovative offerings.

When not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our three children.

John Bearden

Chairman

My passion is innovation.  As a Founder and Chief Technological Officer of Turfbond, it’s my responsibility to encourage an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit throughout the organization.  I strive to ensure we push ourselves beyond regularly accepted borders and restraints to produce both cutting edge processes and products.  I believe by leveraging technology, engineering and modified processes new products can be created more efficiently with higher sustainable  margins.  Some think that innovation is impossible in certain industries. At Turfbond,  we strive to prove them wrong.  We like challenges and look beyond barriers for new possibilities.

Mary Mathena

Director of Accounting

My role at Turfbond is complex and ever-changing.; my duties run the gambit from office management to accounts payable and receivable.  I enjoy working with a team of individuals who strive for excellence every day. Our operations staff continually impress me with their superb customer service and the best turf graphics in the industry.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors.

Mick Wilson

Customer Relations Manager

Superior customer service begins with the first contact and continues for the life of the relationship.  I enjoy developing and nurturing long standing relationships with our customers based on dependability, reliability and giving the highest level of customer service and care.  By first listening to the customer’s wants and needs, I can explain the installation options available so they can make an informed decision on how best to proceed with the optimum products for their project.
