TenCate, the manufacturer, distributor and installer of synthetic turf for sports and landscape applications, has appointed Marty Olinger as president of the Sports Division for its Americas operations.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, with manufacturing facilities in the Netherlands, the U.S., the U.K., and the United Arab Emirates, the company reportedly serves customers in over 40 countries with a suite of brands. The company is fully vertical, which allows for full chain control from R&D through manufacturing, installation, maintenance, and recycling.

“We are extremely excited to add someone with Marty’s synthetic turf experience to our team,” said Charles Dawson, CEO of the Sports Division for TenCate Americas. “His proven track record of sales and brand development will be invaluable as we continue to create and install game-changing sports turf products across the country.”

Olinger was, most recently, senior vice president of sales for Tarkett Sports. He has held several executive management roles in the sports and consumer industries, including at Srixon Sports, Dunlop Maxfli Sports Corporation and Johnson & Johnson.

“I could not be happier about joining TenCate, the clear leader for innovation and sustainability in the synthetic turf industry,” Olinger said. “I look forward to lending my experience and skills to helping TenCate continue to expand the reach of its world-class product portfolio and its mission of creating healthier, more beautiful communities.”
