Paul McLean, former CEO at CWB Maxium Financial and co-founder of Maxium Financial Services acquired Turf Care Products Canada in April of 2019. After 45 years at the helm of one of Canada’s largest commercial turf equipment distributors, former President & CEO, Ron Craig made the decision to retire from Turf Care at the end of 2019. McLean’s acquisition of Turf Care was a natural fit as he and Craig have a long-standing relationship and share many core values that have been integral to the success of both Maxium and Turf Care.
