I accepted my first position in the golf business in 2007 as the Pro Shop Managerl at Boonsboro Country Club in Lynchburg, Virginia. During this time, I was also pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Business from Liberty University, which I was able to complete in May of 2008. During my time at Boonsboro Country Club, I created and managed an Ebay Golf Store that produced additional sales for the club and increased the inventory turnover rate by 1.5 times.
In 2009 I moved to Greenville, South Carolina to take a position as an Assistant Manager at The Eagle Zone Golf Improvement Cente. While at the Eagle Zone, I developed my skills as a leader and as a relationship builder. One of my proudest accomplishments is that I developed and implemented a fitting program that earned the Ping Fitter of the Year Award. Also, I was the lead salesman at the facility for two years running before my departure in 2011. In 2010 my personal equipment sales accounted for 41% of total quipment sales for the year.
In 2011 I accepted a role as the Assistant Manager at Greenville Country Club for the Chanticleer Course, The Chanticleer Golf Course is nationally ranked as one of the Top 100 places to play int he country. In my short time at the facility, I restructured and managed the golf club fitting program that led to a three-fold increase in revenue from the previous year. Also, I managed the facility's social media initiatives and special event programs.
In 2012 my wife accepted a position at Proctor & Gamble in Cincinnati, Ohio. We have recenlty moved to Cincinnati and I am seeking a new and challenging career path. I am a driven, results oriented professional with a pasion for marketing. I am a natural leader with experience in hiring, training and managing staff with a focus on developing relationships and customer satisfaction.
