10.42am 7th December 2021 - Corporate

Worldwide Golf Brands has announced that experienced area sales manager Ryan Bodkin will be joining the business in the new year to represent Oscar Jacobson, Stuburt, MacGregor and Farah Golf in the South of England.

Ryan will cover the area south of the Thames, stretching across the country south of the M4 from Kent to Hampshire. 

Having worked in the golf industry for 19 years, with the past ten years spent at Masters Golf, Bodkin will be taking over the region from Matt Allen on January 4.

“Matt leaves Oscar Jacobson in a very healthy position in the South East, giving Ryan a great platform to develop the brand and grow the presence of Macgregor, Stuburt and Farah Golf,” commented Steve Grant, WWGB Sales Manager.

“Bringing Ryan on board is a great move for our continued development. He has a fantastic track record with Masters and a huge range of contacts across the region. In our discussions, we were incredibly impressed by Ryan’s enthusiasm for our brands and his desire to deliver significant growth across the region. We’ve found a great appointment for a key area and look forward to helping Ryan achieve his ambitions.” 

Bodkin said: “I’ve got a real passion for golf apparel, so when the opportunity to work with such a fantastic portfolio of brands came up, I jumped at the chance. I’ve actually worn Oscar Jacobson apparel for many years, so know the quality on offer.

“Stuburt provides great quality at a completely different price point and with Farah Golf about to launch in SS22 I’m really getting the chance to indulge my passion! Add in the unmatched heritage and affordable quality on offer with MacGregor and I can’t wait to introduce my network of contacts across the South of England to these incredible brands.”
