Turf Masters Lawn Care, a leader in lawn care services in the southeast adds two seasoned operations and sales leaders as branch managers. John Coppola joins the team as Branch Manager of the Greenville, SC location and Jason Kobrin as Branch Manager of the Woodstock, Georgia location.
Coppola, an experienced leader with a customer service focused mindset, began his career in the green industry as a lawn technician more than 30 years ago. He was promoted several times during his 16 years at a locally-owned, regional lawn care company. After the company sold to Scotts Lawn Service, John became a Field Audit and Support Manager for Scotts and then General Manager of the Nashville location and start up Charleston location—rapidly growing the customer base in both markets in just a few years.
When the Charleston location was reorganized to ExperiGreen Lawn Care in 2016, Coppola managed the startup of the Charlotte location and led the company in gross revenues and customer acquisitions.
Jason Kobrin brings almost 14 years of lawn care experience having worked for Scotts Miracle-Gro Company and most recently, TruGreen. Jason spent several years in sales at both companies before moving to market sales manager. He excels in building and leading high-performing teams, consistently exceeds sales goals and maintains high levels of customer retention.
John and Jason are both enthusiastic and motivated leaders with a focus on customer service,” said Brian Butler, President of Turf Masters. “John not only brings a great wealth of green industry knowledge, but also has a successful record of training and retaining team members. Jason’s experience in sales and maintaining high levels of customer service and satisfaction will help accelerate the success of our Woodstock branch in 2020.
Coppola replaces Andy Ferrell who has been promoted to Regional Sales Manager.
