James M. Bateman, Chief Executive Officer of EnviroTurf began his career in the turf business in the year 2000 in an effort to help Belhaven College install synthetic turf on Newell Field. What was to be a short-term avocation became a passion, and in 2004 he formed SurfacesPlus, LLC and began actively building a company known throughout the South as a leader in the installation of sports surfaces of all types. After a 30-year career in the financial services industry, this seemed like an unusual change, but Jim has used his experience as a financial advisor to add a unique fund-raising dimension to his company by helping schools and municipalities pursue grants, private-sector donations, and other joint-venture opportunities to assist their projects. These projects have ranged from multi-million-dollar complexes to weight-room floors, but all are guided by an unwavering commitment to excellence.
