Experienced golf industry insider Jeremy Tomlinson will join England Golf as its new chief executive in January.
Tomlinson was previously vice-president and managing director of Acushnet Europe, where he was responsible for the Titleist and FootJoy brands. Prior to this he was a founding director of online golf retailer jamgolf.com and spent eight years as brand and sales manager for Callaway Golf Europe.
Nic Coward, chairman of England Golf, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jeremy as our new chief executive. His considerable business experience and his deep knowledge of golf at all levels will be a huge asset to England Golf and all the organisations involved in developing, promoting and running the sport across the country.”
Tomlinson said:“I am honoured and excited to become the new chief executive of England Golf. To be joining a talented team with so many opportunities to positively affect the health of our great game is hugely energising.”
In addition to his leading roles in the golf industry, Tomlinson has been heavily involved in the development and promotion of the game at schools’ and community level as a trustee of the Golf Foundation. He also has experience in the amateur game both as a county player for Wiltshire and as a volunteer at his home club, Marlborough GC.
Former England Golf chief executive Nick Pink, who took on the role in March 2016, has recently taken up the post of chief executive at England Hockey.
