Zach Burns, President of The Motz Group, was re-elected to the Board of Directors of the Synthetic Turf Council (STC) during their Annual Membership Meeting in San Antonio, Texas on September 29 – October 1. Founded in 2003, STC serves as an objective resource assisting buyers and end users with the selection, use, and maintenance of synthetic turf systems in sports field, golf and landscape applications throughout North America and abroad. His re-election to the Board recognizes Burns’ leadership position within the industry overall.
“The Board sets the strategic direction of the organization,” notes Rick Doyle, President of the Synthetic Turf Council. “Considering the various changes that our industry is currently experiencing, Zach will play a critical role in guiding the growth and influence of the Council.”
Based in Cincinnati, The Motz Group specializes in synthetic turf, sports field design, construction, removal, replacement, and management. The Company is the Midwest market leader in high performance turf systems and has been proudly serving the industry for nearly 40 years. Burns has been especially committed to advancing STC’s mission of maintaining the highest quality practices and standards throughout the industry.
Demand has grown to the point where more than 8,000 multi-use synthetic turf sports fields are now enjoyed in North American schools, colleges, parks and professional sports stadiums. As the need for durable playing fields continues to escalate, especially those that don’t require high water usage during times of drought, synthetic turf has become an increasingly popular solution to enhance athletic performance, deal with the issue of limited space in older cities and suburbs, and allow for multiple sports teams to practice and play on a grass-like surface.
