Bayer appoints 2 new managers


Environmental Science, a division of Bayer CropScience, appointed John Wendorf as market segment manager and Wes Kleffner as area sales manager for its North American turf and ornamentals business.

Based in Research Triangle Park, N.C., Wendorf will focus on business development and strategy to support the growth of Bayer’s portfolio of turf and ornamentals solutions for professional land care managers and consumers.

“I’m excited to be a part of this dynamic team, and I look forward to contributing to Bayer’s strategy for helping customers care for and protect our green spaces both today and in the future,” Wendorf said.

Wendorf brings more than 20 years of turf and ornamentals industry experience to his new role, having held several sales and marketing positions in the industry. He most recently served as vice president for the grower division of a horticultural distributor.

Kleffner serves the Kansas, Missouri and Colorado markets, and will be responsible for driving sales of assigned accounts and distributor branches, as well as building and maintaining relationships with key end users.

His expertise comprises more than a decade of turf management experience in the lawn and golf markets. In his most recent role as turf manager for Ryan Lawn & Tree, Kleffner managed a team of lawn care professionals servicing hundreds of residential and commercial lawn care customers throughout the Midwest. He previously served as an assistant golf course superintendent at The Club at Hokulia.
