Dr. Benelli joined ES Canada in 2018 and has provided valuable scientific and technical support to Golf Course Superintendents and turf managers across Canada. Tim Steen, Golf Segment Manager, says “Jesse has become an integral part of the turf sales and marketing team and his knowledge and passion for turfgrass will be missed by all”.
In his time with Bayer ES Dr. Benelli supported the successful launch of Dedicate Stressgard fungicide, Tetrino insecticide and has spearheaded the introduction of the TurfView digital platform pilot in the Canadian business. Jesses says “It is with mixed emotions that I announce my departure from the Bayer ES Canada to pursue other opportunities within the Bayer organization. My family and I have called Canada home since 2018 and we have enjoyed every moment of it. By far my greatest experiences come from the interactions I have had with all our great customers and the Bayer team. From the golf course personnel to our distribution partners, all of you have been tremendous and I thank you for your support.“
A search for Dr. Benelli’s replacement has begun and his successor will be announced in the near future.
