J. Michael Beane, the director of sales and owner of Terraplas USA, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of ground protection services.

Hailing from nearly three decades of service in the ground protection industry, Mr. Beane has earned distinction as the owner and director of sales at Terraplas USA, a combined sales and rental company that has sold more than 11,500,000 square feet of various ground cover systems, including natural outdoor grass, indoor and outdoor synthetics, and drivable surfaces. Since 1994, their clients have ranged from academic institutions to municipal gathering places and sports organizations. Prior to the introduction of Terraplas in the United States, only a small number of sports stadiums were willing to permit concerts due to the potential harm it could cause to natural grass. However, due to the implementation of Terraplas’ exceptional products, concerts are now being held in numerous stadiums across the country. This momentous shift in the industry can be directly attributed to Mr. Beane’s most notable accomplishment. Terraplas was first developed for Wembley Stadium in London, England, in 1991. It was later introduced to the United States in 1994 and, owing to its impressive durability, has only grown in popularity ever since, with over 35 million square feet of the product sold globally. 

In accounting for his success, Mr. Beane credits the influence of his parents – particularly his father, a product of the Great Depression era whose model of determination and grit proved inspirational. Mr. Beane inherited these qualities, which have been instrumental in his own remarkable achievements. Looking toward the future, he aspires to further distinguish himself in his philanthropic endeavors and promote the success of others. To wit, Mr. Beane looks forward to investing in the career aspirations of his grandchildren.
