Mansfield headed Lely’s turf division business, best known for the distribution of Toro turfcare products,  for 22 years, after first being appointed general manger, turf business, in 1992.

He oversaw parts, service, warranty, training, sales and marketing and Lely’s national dealer network.

Mansfield was a familiar figure at events such as Saltex and BTME. He also played a leading role as the link between Toro, BIGGA and Lely, as well as being a judge, for the Toro Student Greenkeeper of the Year Awards.

He set up and ran a new 24/72 Parts Programme to guarantee customers on-time delivery of Toro parts in 24 hours from stock or only 72 hours for those being flown in from Toro in the US.
