Dr. Gregg Munshaw, a native of western Canada, is the Chief Scientist at Pinnacle Ag Research Center near St. Louis, Missouri USA. He has been in the turf industry for nearly 30 years and worked as a university professor for over half that time in the southern and transitional climatic regions of the United States. Gregg is the author of numerous scientific and extension articles and has educated about turf around the world. Dr. Munshaw is passionate about reducing turfgrass inputs and has previously served as the Director of Research for the Alliance for Low-Input Sustainable Turf, a non-profit dedicated to developing improved varieties. In his current role he focuses on turfgrass stress alleviation testing new genetics, products, and practices to improve turf and soil health.

Mike DeCicco, born and raised in Kamloops, has a long family history in the sport turf industry.
