PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – FMC Corporation has named Alea Miehls as market specialist for its Turf & Ornamental segment. She will provide sales and technical support in the western states including California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah and Arizona, working closely with distribution and key professionals in lawn care, golf, and nursery and ornamental markets.

Miehls’ appointment is an integral part of FMC’s expanding presence in the Turf & Ornamental market. She replaces Corbett Schnatmeyer, who moved from the West Coast to cover the Turf & Ornamental market in the Northeast after Allan Dufoe was named to the newly created position of Turf & Ornamental key account manager and nursery and greenhouse market lead.

A recent graduate of the University of California, Riverside, Miehls holds a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and a master’s degree in plant biology. She conducted her thesis project on salinity and water management of perennial ryegrass.
