Mike Woelfel is best described as a problem solver. Mike has successfully built and launched multiple companies across a multitude of industries. Mike has also served as a consultant to companies large and small on such topics as strategic marketing plans, business models, and exit strategies. Born and raised in Oregon, Mike answered a call from Craig Prunty to leave his Arizona home and return to Oregon to become a partner in Sports Turf Northwest.
Sports Turf Northwest was created as a result of Craig Prunty’s son contracting a Staph infection while playing sports. After looking at all the options for treating synthetic turf, GreensGroomer™ Worldwide, was the obvious choice in artificial turf sterilization equipment. Sports Turf Northwest became an authorized dealer to sell GreensGroomer Worldwide solutions to facilities across North America.
