[Melbourne, November 23rd] – Envu, a leader in innovative turf solutions in ANZ, is delighted to announce the appointment of James Royal as the Turf & Ornamentals Product Manager for the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, effective January 1, 2024.

James joined the business in 2016 as the Market Manager – Turf & Ornamentals for the Australia and New Zealand region. During his tenure, James has played a pivotal role in transforming the market landscape, exemplified by his exceptional leadership and strategic vision.

Under James’s guidance, the Turf & Ornamental Team has grown significantly from a single Market Manager to a robust unit of four customer-facing roles.  The team has also launched seven groundbreaking products for the Turf & Ornamental portfolio, including Specticle®, Reserve® Stressgard, Exteris® Stressgard, Signature® Xtra Stressgard, Indemnify®, Dedicate® Forte Stressgard, and Tetrino®, a pipeline of product that has addressed a number of major challenges faced by turf managers across Australia and solidifying Envu's position as a trusted partner in the turf management industry.

Martin Ball, Head of ANZ Cluster & Managing Director Australia expressed “James has made an invaluable contribution to the Envu business since joining us in 2016. James has played a lead role in the growth journey of the Turf & Ornamental segment and has built an incredible team to support this key business unit. This new role provides James with a fantastic opportunity to broaden his experience and work with other leading regions within the turf space, benefiting both ANZ and the regional business.”

In his new role as Turf & Ornamentals Product Manager for APAC, James will expand his focus on innovation and pipeline development to the region. With Australia being viewed as one of a small number of Centres of Excellence for the Turf and Ornamentals segment globally, James’ continued residency in Sydney ensures a direct and robust connection between the new role and the ongoing development of Envu's Turf & Ornamentals business in Australia.

“I look forward to this new challenge, working with Envu teams across the Asia Pacific region.  As part of a global portfolio management team, head quartered in the United States, my focus will be to drive the introduction of exciting and innovative new solutions for our customers in APAC, building on the already strong portfolio Envu has in the Turf & Ornamentals segment.” James said.

This appointment underlines Envu's commitment to fostering leadership from within the organization and its dedication to delivering cutting-edge solutions to turf managers across the APAC region.

Envu has commenced recruitment to backfill James's position as Market Manager, ensuring continuity for the segment and Envu’s leadership within the Turf & Ornamental space.

James will continue to be contactable via phone on +61 408 903 252 or email at james.royal@envu.com.
