March 23, 2016 – Global Turf Equipment (GTE) – the world’s largest independent seller and exporter of pre-owned golf course equipment – announces Kevin Patten as the newest sales representative to join its growing team.
A former golf course superintendent, Patten will represent GTE and sister company Turf Equipment Rental in the Palm Beach area. He is also the Founder/President of Patten Turf Inc. – which he will continue to operate in conjunction with his new role at GTE.
“Kevin understands the needs of Florida’s superintendents because he has, quite literally, walked in their shoes,” says Jim Sartain, President of GTE. “His knowledge of the tools and procedures necessary for sustainable turf will be instrumental in providing our clients with the proper equipment.”
In his new position, Patten will oversee sales and rentals around Southeast Florida. Earlier this month, Global Turf Equipment brought on Corey Kimball of Nu-Green by Corey Inc. to lead the charge in the Jacksonville / North Florida region.
Based outside Tampa, GTE showcases 750-plus “like new” machines across several warehouses totaling more than 45,000 sq. ft. Offering savings of up to 50% on products from brand leaders like Toro, John Deere, Jacobsen and Club Car, its inventory includes fairway green and rough mowers; top dressers and spreaders; trim mowers; turf aerators, sprayers, vacuums and blowers; utility vehicles and more.
Servicing golf facilities in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, GTE is proud of its reputation for carrying high quality, low hour, off-lease equipment. All machines purchased from GTE have received a thorough inspection of the engine, drive train, electrical system, hydraulic system and cutting units. They also come with a minimum of 50% of reel and tire life remaining, as well as new oil and oil filters, fuel and fuel filters, spark plugs, hydraulic fluid and hydraulic filters, rotary blades, bedknives, and more.
