Andrew Schroeder of Schroeder’s Outdoor Services LLC in Gibsonburg, Ohio, was named winner of Toro’s 2018 GIE+EXPO giveaway. Schroeder picked up his brand new Toro Z Master 3000 Series zero-turn mower equipped with the MyRide suspension system from his local Toro dealer, Willie’s Sales and Service in Fremont, Ohio. Willie’s has specialized in lawn and garden equipment sales and service for more than 60 years.

“We already run a lot of Toro mowers, so I was very excited to learn that I had been selected as the prize winner and can add this Z Master to our fleet,” said Schroeder. “I’m really looking forward to putting this new mower to the test in the spring.”

Buck Storlie has been promoted to product line manager for ASV Holdings, a manufacturer of all-purpose and all-season compact track loaders and skid-steers. Storlie will be primarily responsible for determining the direction of ASV’s lines of compact track loaders and skid-steer loaders. He also will be ASV’s leading customer advocate, product and market intelligence expert, and champion of both existing and new product development and life cycle.

Storlie, a 23-year veteran of ASV, most recently held a position as ASV’s testing and reliability leader, where he managed product testing, reliability and field issue resolutions. He focused on ensuring customers receive maximum productivity, durability, ROI and comfort out of their ASV machines.

“I look forward to continuing my product development work in a new role at ASV,” Storlie said. “I care deeply about our machines and customers, so I’m thrilled with the opportunity to find new ways to improve our customers’ businesses and lives with our equipment.”

Pioneer Landscape Centers promoted long-time Pioneer executive, Kevin Guzior, to COO. Over the past 12 years Guzior has gained experience in the landscaping industry from his numerous roles at Pioneer both in Arizona and Colorado. He will step into his new role effective immediately.

“So much of Pioneer’s success is due to what got us started in the first place—a focus on our customers and our people coupled with a commitment to quality products and process,” said Guzior. “We will continue to leverage our 50 years of experience and focus on the basics of product availability and service.”

“Kevin’s expertise in the industry is just part of what makes him the best fit for this role,” said Mark Adamson, CEO of the company. “We are looking to deliver an unrivaled experience for our customers and that requires a relentless focus on execution throughout the supply chain. Kevin has a deep understanding of not only Pioneer’s business but also those of our customers and as such was the logical choice to help us continue to grow.”
