Kyle Miller, BASF Professional Turf & Ornamentals Senior Technical Specialist – Northern U.S.

August 09, 2010

Home base: Chesterfield, Virginia

Time with BASF: 21 years

Approach with customers:  “I really enjoy educating people and helping customers solve problems. I work on the front end of bringing products to market. It’s my job to work with our customers and help them understand the solutions that BASF offers from start to finish. That means listening to customers face to face and working with them to break down complex, scientific processes into simple, customer-specific solutions.

First job: “When I was 13 years old I worked in a golf course pro shop. I learned then how to find success. The pro at the time taught me work ethic. He always said, ‘Work hard and you’ll find success. Set out to do something and do it.’ Several years later I joined the maintenance crew on the golf course which led to my interest in turf and my career in the T&O business.”

When he’s not working, you’ll find Kyle: Escaping with his wife and their three daughters and son to Myrtle Beach, S.C. to enjoy the beach. He and his family love the water, especially boating and water skiing.

Kyle also enjoys being at home and working in the yard, located in the Virginia countryside. “It’s nice making the place where you spend a lot of time feeling homey, inviting and relaxing. We love being outdoors working in the garden, taking care of the lawn and enjoying the fish pond,” he said.  

Kyle is also willing to win any bet. “My sister bet me $100 that I couldn’t finish a marathon. I took that as a challenge and won the $100,” he said. “I even trained for and finished a second marathon in Richmond.”
