New CEO for the Synthetic Turf Council (STC)

Melanie Taylor has replaced Dan Bond as CEO of the Synthetic Turf Council (STC), the industry body for the synthetic turf industry in North-America.

“After 13 years of working with the STC in several positions, most recently as Associate Director, Taylor is well-positioned for success with long-standing industry relationships and an extensive background in the trade association space since 2003,” a press release by the STC explained.

“The STC is very fortunate to have Melanie,” said Todd DeWolfe, Chairman of the STC Board of Directors and Vice President of Business Development and Research, AstroTurf. “She is the right leader at the right time, who brings a unique and credible reputation for value among members and stakeholders.”

Taylor has demonstrated her commitment to the 18 year-old organization in many areas of responsibility, including member services, meetings, education, certification, governance, issues management and strategic planning.

“I am honored to continue my journey with the STC as its first woman president and collaborate with a strategic board of directors and member-focused staff to build an inclusive and innovative environment for an evolving industry,” said Taylor.

Taylor succeeds Dan Bond, CAE, who served as president and CEO since 2016.

Prior to the STC, Taylor was the executive assistant for a national trade association in the protein and food distribution industry for five years.

Taylor received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from George State University in Atlanta, Georgia. She is an active member of the Georgia Society of Association Executives (GSAE) and American Society of Association Executives (ASAE).
