Valent Professional Products announced that Heath Lowery has joined the company as territory manager in the South Central region. Lowery will be responsible for managing the company’s turf and ornamental product lines and distribution channels in six states: Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.

A native of Houston, Lowery spent the the past three years as a propagator for Greenleaf Nursery Co. in its Texas division.

“Heath is experienced with Valent’s product line because he’s used our products, and he knows the challenges customers face on a daily basis because he’s been there and dealt with those challenges himself,” said John Johnson, national sales manager for Valent.
