Ranjeet Singh is promoted to Managing Director for STOCKMEIER Urethanes ME LLC
Ranjeet, who began in September 2020 as the Sales Manager for Sports and Leisure Flooring for the Middle East, Africa, and India, will be the Managing Director at STOCKMEIER Urethanes ME LLC.
In 2009, Ranjeet started his career in India at GreenFields BV as a technical installer of artificial turf. His primary duty was installing turf fields, one being the first certified FIFA 2-star field in India. Simultaneously, Ranjeet worked in the manufacturing side of the business which piqued his interest in manufacturing. In 2010, he moved to the UAE and worked on a few prestigious government and military projects installing over 50,000 square meters of fields in five months where he procured, and in some cases, developed his own infill machinery tools (which he thoroughly enjoyed), given the tight deadlines he faced.
After a few years of turf installation work, in 2013, Ranjeet decided to make a lateral move to expand from a primarily technical position to one that included sales and business development. He took a position at TenCate Thiolon Middle East and managed their first-ever Middle East sales portfolio for TigerTurf. He developed a market for TigerTurf in the Middle East by traveling extensively across the MENA region. Ranjeet states, “I built a network from scratch, and I realized I enjoyed working with people as much as I enjoyed working with my tools and tractors on site! Having spent four years with them, I joined Polytan as Sales Manager Middle East and broadened my horizons by selling PU flooring and developing products that I had not worked with previously.”
Regarding his time at STOCKMEIER Urethanes, Ranjeet expresses, “I was extremely impressed with the product portfolio and the culture of the company when I first joined them. I’ve come to realize that the leadership’s vision for accelerated growth, and a dynamic approach to managing global situations, while still having a pulse on local needs and responding accordingly, sets us apart. I firmly believe that we are at the start of a fantastic journey, and I’m excited to continue the vision of growth in the MEASA region.”
Christian Martinkat, Chairman of the Management Board of the STOCKMEIER Urethanes Group states, "We are delighted and confident that Ranjeet will succeed in his new position. In just two quick years, he has proven himself and has shown tremendous growth. Ranjeet will continue to drive the strategic development of the STOCKMEIER Urethanes Group in the coming months and years, thus resume our continuous growth worldwide."
