  • Zero Restriction GORE-TEX® Outerwear will be represented by Phil Nightingale in the Home Counties to compliment his other PGB brands;

  • To compliment PGB’s relationship with Selecta Sport, International Golf Partners picks up the Cutter & Buck, Green Lamb, Zero Restriction GORE-TEX® Outerwear and Pukka headwear brands in Spain.

“Managing multiple brands across such a diverse territory has its challenges, but we feel that these new appointments mark a positive step towards delivering consistently high standards throughout the UK & Europe.  These people demonstrate the same commitment to service that we have and are motivated to grow our business in their regions,” commented General Manager of PGB Paul Byrd.

As a global company with an expanding portfolio of world class brands PGB needs to react to every move in the market place.  These new appointments ensure that its position as the fastest growing European golf apparel company is in safe hands.
