About Us

Our Story

Since 2009, USGreentech has focused on one essential part of the synthetic turf system: the infill. Our company thrives because we believe What’s In Your Turf Matters®. We believe it matters more than any other component of the system. We have never lost sight of where we started and are now considered infill experts in the turf industry. Backed by our parent company’s 40+ years of experience in the sports field industry, USGreentech understands what it takes to create long-lasting synthetic turf systems with well-vetted components. Our experience with design and construction ensures that we will always be at the top of our game when it comes to helping our customers better understand installation, maintenance, and removal of synthetic turf. We continually innovate to provide new and better ways to serve our customers. In summary, we care. We care about the synthetic turf industry. We care about the young athletes we serve. We stand behind the products we deliver. We’re not just your synthetic turf infill provider; we’re your biggest fan.

Our Mission

Mission Statement: Innovatively creating sports fields and leisure spaces for communities around the world

Purpose Statement: We move people to better lives

Our mission is to be the first infill choice for field owners, homeowners, business owners, and more. USGreentech exists because infill is an integral part of a synthetic turf system, and choosing the right one will increase system longevity, improve performance, and address safety concerns. We understand the challenges and concerns facility owners face, namely creating a space that will provide the highest quality, safety, and experience for their players, families, and guests. We are constantly focused on researching and developing the best technology, balancing these factors with high performance. Our focus is to move the industry forward, always putting the athletes, children, and other end users of the field first when finding solutions to their problems. To successfully move the industry forward and make an impact on the future, we have to invest in our people, our customers, and our communities.

Our Culture

We can proudly say that our team members are excited to come to work each and every day. This is made possible through the caring and fun culture we’ve created. In addition to all of us being co-workers, we are co-owners. USGreentech, as part of our parent company, The Motz Corporation, is part of an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) which means our owners (employees) are invested in the success of our customers, partners and industry as a whole.  USGreentech fosters a culture of innovation, allowing team members at all levels to come up with out-of-the-box ideas to problem solve. The energy of the team is infectious and fuels the passion we feel about the work we do. Open communication is highly valued to keep our headquarters and remote owners across the country connected. This culture has been proven as USGreentech is a multi-year finalist in the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Best Places to Work competition, WINNER of the 2016, 2019, and 2020 Top Workplaces in Cincinnati, and WINNER of the 2017 INC’s Top 50 Best Workplaces.

Our Team

Meet our most valuable asset; our people! Each and every one of this diverse group of individuals brings something special to the table.

Joe Motz
I thoroughly enjoy what I do and the difference I see we are making in people’s lives through our coming together to build turf systems and advancing the industry through the ongoing products we are developing to continue to advance it. I love the outdoors, hiking and hanging out (hammock style), biking up mountain passes, or skiing down the other side. There is much thrill-seeking to be had out there.
Zach Burns
Zach's favorite part about being president of USGreentech is being surrounded by talented and like-minded employee-owners. As a team, we thrive in a culture of teamwork, respect, and fun, which Zach loves. When Zach is not busy at work, you can find him with his wonderful wife, playing with his four very active children, or challenging himself with a tough bike ride.
Valerie Webster
Chief Strategy Officer
Valerie likes to think of herself as an innovative numbers person. Her passion is people. Realizing spreadsheets don't motivate people, Valerie invests her time in getting to know people, learning what tools they need to get their work done while driving efficiencies throughout the organization. Valerie's self-proclaimed mantra: "Find new and better ways"

If he's not on a boat or out on the course, he's likely cheering on some of his favorite Cincinnati based sports teams or traveling to a new and exciting destination!
Russ Speigle
Vice President of Operations
Russ is passionate about many things, so we're not surprised that his favorite part of the job is interacting with a wide range of people from our clients to our sister company's Field Operations Team.

Kevin McDonnell

Kevin is all about the numbers, which makes his role as Chief Financial Officer the perfect fit. Don't let his intense love of math fool you. He knows how to have fun and play a few pranks. His favorite part about his role is the frequent interaction with all employees and teams within the business. When Kevin is not crunching the numbers, you can pretty much always find him outside.

Operations Manager
His #1 favorite thing about being with USGreentech is “the focus on taking care of the employees and providing opportunities for growth both at work and at home.” Ross most enjoys the challenge each day brings in his role: There’s always something new to test, review, analyze, etc. As part of USGreentech’s cultural belief in giving back to communities in need, Ross volunteers as a weekly math tutor at his elementary school alma-mater. He understands math can be a boring subject, but he loves coming up with ways to engage his students and in return they usually have something funny to say to give him a laugh or a smile. On the weekend, Ross likes walking to grab a coffee, going to the gym to shoot some hoops, go for a run, or do anything else that gets his blood flowing. His favorite meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch, rain, shine, etc…..is pizza!

In the spirit of service, Andrew has spent the past two years volunteering for Philabundance, which sorts bulk food items and distributes them to families in need throughout the Philadelphia community.

Mikayla Lanier

Mikayla loves being a part of USGreentech for the culture and people. “There’s tons of room for growth, personally and professionally, which the company strongly supports.” The best part of Mikayla’s position to her is the opportunity to work with all sorts of different people, and the new things she gets to learn every single day on the job. Although she likes spending her weekends attending FC Cincinnati games and exploring new restaurants and parks, Mikayla also enjoys just binge watching Netflix with her puppy Ollie and her two cats Nippert and Dora.

At USGreentech and within the community, April enjoys working with young people to help them explore the wide range of opportunities available to them.

My past jobs and life choices have lead me to do something I love and I want to help others find that for themselves."
Ashley Schriefer
Digital Marketing Specialist
Although Ashley is a newer member of the USGreentech family, her favorite thing about the company (so far) is the people. “Working here isn’t always like having a job, it’s also like having a family.” Ashley’s favorite thing about her role as a Digital Marketing Specialist is her ability to exercise her passions for marketing and technology at the same time. On her downtime, if she’s not watching Netflix cuddled up with her two dogs, Ashley will definitely be on the go traveling! Her dream destination is Ireland, but any sort of fall-themed festival closer to home will scratch her travel itch in a pinch.
Andrew Brooks

Andrew Brooks is the newest member of the USGreentech team, but that hasn’t stopped him from gaining a love for the company! Andrew's favorite part of USGreentech is the culture and company values. He “loves the opportunity his role as Logistics and Account support gives him to build relationships with our partners.” As a recent graduate from the University of Cincinnati, he is known for his love of sports and local Cincinnati teams. A great day to Brooks would be a morning round of golf, followed up by a game where the Reds, Bengals, or Bearcats win!
