Chris Williamson has joined PBI-Gordon’s research team.

Based in Defiance, Ohio, Williamson will be responsible for coordinating all research protocols, technical assistance to cooperators and product support for end users in Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Utah and Wisconsin.

Williamson holds a Ph.D. in entomology from the University of Kentucky, where he developed novel and innovative strategies for management of the black cutworm on golf course putting greens. He earned his bachelor’s in agronomy/turfgrass science and a Master’s from The Ohio State University.

Most recently, Williamson was a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison—a position he’s held for the past 20 years. Prior to that, he was an assistant golf course superintendent and a research scientist with TruGreen.

“Chris has nearly 30 years of experience in the turf and ornamental industry and has always strived to provide relevant and practical solutions to growers and managers,” said Mark Welterlen, vice president of research and development for PBI-Gordon. “He comes on board at a time when PBI-Gordon is developing and expanding its insecticide portfolio. By tapping into his extensive expertise in entomology, we’ll be providing even more solutions for the golf and lawn care industries.”
