Charlotte, North Carolina-based Jacobsen recently added Chris Makowski as a territory sales manager.

Makowski comes to Jacobsen from Toro distributor Grassland Equipment and Irrigation in Rochester, New York, where he spent 13 years as a sales representative.

Prior to his tenure at Grassland Equipment, Makowski spent over a decade as an assistant grounds superintendent at Webster Golf Club, also in Rochester. Makowski is also a SMEI-Certified Professional Salesperson (SCPS).

As territory sales manager in the Northeast, Makowski is serving Jacobsen dealers and customers in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and Cape Cod.

“As we continue to grow and expand, we are adding industry experts to our team like Chris Makowski,” said Ric Stone, vice president of sales and marketing for Jacobsen. “Chris’ unique background in both turf equipment sales and turf management will help us build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.”
