Motocaddy appoints golf industry expert as chairman

8.30am 7th March 2008 - Corporate

Motocaddy, the UK’s fastest-growing motorised trolley manufacturers, has recently appointed one of the best-known figures in the golf industry as its Chairman.

David Wells, current chairman of the British Golf Industry Association (BGIA) and a man who has worked in the industry for almost 20 years, joins Motocaddy four years after being part of the successful team that built up and sold competitors PowaKaddy and Hill Billy to EGBH.

He plans to use his vast experience of the motorised golf trolley market to support Motocaddy managing director, Rod Brown, and to help the Hertfordshire-based company to expand its market share both in the UK and abroad.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for me and I’m really looking forward to working with Rod and the rest of the management team,” said Wells. “I’m excited about where the brand can go. We will all be working together to create a new road map for the business and to transform Motocaddy into a truly global brand.”

Motocaddy Ltd was established in 2004 and has already built an enviable reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the market. Its Motocaddy S3 trolley was recently awarded a Gold Award in a test of motorised trolleys in Today’s Golfer magazine and it has just launched an advanced new S1 Digital model to replace its hugely popular S1 trolley.

“Over the last four years Motocaddy has worked hard to build a reputation for build quality, style, reliability and affordability and now, with David’s help, we can take things to the next level,” said Brown. “It’s an exciting time for Motocaddy and everybody who works with the company.”

Motocaddy trolleys are available direct from the company on or from leading pro shops and golf retailers across the UK and Europe.
