When John Wendorf assumed the role of director for SePRO’s Turf & Ornamental (T&O) division in December of 2020, he emphasized his commitment to attracting and retaining the industry’s best and brightest for SePRO’s T&O team. Today, Wendorf and his associates are making good on that commitment by announcing the first of several new additions planned for the growing business.
Todd Stassel has joined SePRO’s central region as an Ornamental Technical Specialist. Stassel is extremely passionate about the ornamental industry as evidenced by his career of nearly 40-years in the business. With expertise in supporting professional growers, Stassel is known for his ability to leverage proven strategies and best practices to enhance outcomes. “Todd’s impressive tenure, coupled with his enthusiasm for our industry, makes him a welcomed addition to the SePRO family,” said Dennis Bunkley, National Sales Manager, Ornamentals. Stassel is a graduate of Dupage Horticulture School.
In addition to Stassel, SePRO is welcoming Jack Edwards as an Ornamental Technical Specialist. Edwards is no stranger to SePRO, having successfully completed an internship with the company’s Consumer Sales division during the summer of 2020. Edwards graduated from Purdue University in December of 2020 with a degree in Agribusiness and a minor in Biochemistry.
Mark Brotherton, Senior Portfolio Leader, is excited about the addition of leadership and depth to the team. “There’s enormous value in developing a team of professionals with passion and a common drive for success,” said Brotherton. “Both Stassel and Edwards offer unique talent sets that will enhance SePRO’s ability to deliver solutions and services that our customers are seeking.”
For Wendorf the staff additions exemplify SePRO’s commitment to the Turf & Ornamental industry. “There is an incredible opportunity within the T&O segment, but it requires high-level talent combined with innovative solutions,” said Wendorf. “As a result, SePRO will continue to intentionally recruit the industry’s best-in-class professionals. It’s an exciting time to be part of the SePRO T&O team,” Wendorf concluded.
