Written by:

Just a day into the role and TurfBreed’s new Queensland (QLD) Business Development Manager (BDM), Daniel Pieper has already shown a great respect for the turf industry by getting to know growers and the greater industry.

Daniel comes from a country background and has a solid understanding of sales and dealing with the commercial sector.

In welcoming Daniel on-board, TurfBreed’s Chairman, Sandy Bauman complimented Daniel’s initial aim to help TurfBreed and its growers “…lead the market, not just be the market leader”, as it aligned strongly with the company’s philosophy.

Sandy added that: “TurfBreed was committed to servicing our QLD growers to enhance and maximise their profits and assist them in having the right people in place so they build safe, profitable and sustainable businesses. Following an extensive search for a new BDM, we felt Daniel would be a terrific facilitator for our growers in terms of helping to market turf to both consumers and specifiers. We have chosen someone with strong sales, logistics and marketing skills.”

Sandy stressed that “…TurfBreed and its growers spend a lot of time targeting external players, so this really means we needed someone with good marketing skills who is keen and eager to learn about the industry”.

Daniel added that: “TurfBreed consisted of an extremely strong and robust team of highly experienced and passionate industry professionals brought together by a common goal of changing the way things have been within the Turf Industry. With that being the case and my own career been built on forming good relationships to build good business, I believe I have something to offer all our growers.  My aim is to dedicate my time identifying the needs of the QLD turf growers, answer the questions that haven’t been asked and to keep it ‘real’.”

Daniel will be based at Scenic Rim and has had more than 30 years’ experience in sales, customer service and across a variety of industries.

“We are very confident Daniel will deliver further growth for our QLD growers,” Sandy said.

“He is a strong addition and we welcome him to the TurfBreed team. I am convinced that his personality, broad commercial expertise and network in international business will make him successful at TurfBreed.”
