I am delighted to be able to pursue my passion for golf development whilst learning from the best team in the business.”
Gareth’s experience of direct club support at England Golf combined with Medi8’s experience of delivering integrated marketing packages for golf businesses, golf clubs and governing bodies makes for an exciting prospect for the industry, as Nicole Wheatley, co-owner and founder of Medi8 explains.
“Through our work developing and delivering the We Love Golf campaign around the world for the PGA over the last 2 years we’ve learned a huge amount about golf development. Whilst we understand that every club and every PGA professional is different, there are also fundamental similarities between the people and places that are most successful. We are now in a position to help clubs and businesses implement marketing strategies that are proven to grow their business which makes Gareth the perfect addition to the team. He brings a wealth of knowledge from working directly with clubs and his understanding of the digital and social landscape is excellent. His boundless enthusiasm for golf and life is already making a huge impact in the office so we’re incredible excited for what the future holds!”
