Club Car, the Official Golf Car Supplier to The European Tour and The Ryder Cup, has announced its new EMEIA (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) leadership team following a successful 2012.
Roberto Gorostiaga, Club Car’s EMEIA Leader, has left to join parent company Ingersoll Rand, as Latin American Leader of the Industrial Technologies Americas division, based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Club Car’s Marco Natale has been appointed as Club Car EMEIA Leader, reporting directly to Club Car President and CEO Marc Dufour, as part of the company’s Senior Leadership team.
Natale, who has a Masters degree in engineering from Politecnico Milano and who recently joined Club Car as EMEIA marketing manager, has previously held sales and marketing roles within other Ingersoll Rand businesses.
“Club Car’s growth in golf in the past year – despite the challenging economic situation – is the result of our customer-focused approach, strong product quality, reliability and technology, as well as our commitment to delivering profit to our customers’ bottom lines,” said Marco Natale.
“We work hand in glove with our clients and the long term relationships we maintain with leading organisations such as The European Tour, The Ryder Cup, The PGA and European Golf Course Owners Association, is testament to the value we deliver.”
Reporting to Marco Natale are Kevin Hart and Dennis de Roos, who have been appointed to the roles of Golf Business Sales Director and Utility Business Sales Director respectively.
Club Car President and CEO Marc Dufour said: “We welcome Marco to this important role. We have a strong leadership team in the EMEIA region and continue to see growth, both in the established and emerging markets.”
