Robert Kerns

President and CEO

Hi, my name is Robert! I was born in Pittsburgh, PA. I began working in the lawn care industry in 1983 and have been with Custom Turf since 1987. What I love the most about Custom Turf is how our staff services our customers better than anyone in the business. Our office, technicians, and crews are a delight to be with every day. When I am not in the office, I love spending time with my family. I especially love to travel and dine with my wife. We also have a dog named Flurry. In my free time, I like to go skiing and snowboarding with my daughters... they are a challenge to keep up with!
