Neil has an extensive track record in international markets. He brings to Club Car, experience gained during the 14 years he spent working for leading turf companies including Textron, New Holland and Ford Motor Company.

Neil is delighted to join the already successful ESA team. “My goal is really a simple one; to bring satisfaction to our customers, employees and distributors. We hope to create a sense of loyalty that our competitors can only dream of.”

John Mooney, who has been employed as Club Car’s European Technical Representative for several years, has been rewarded for his consistent high performance, particularly during last year’s Ryder Cup, with a sales role covering southern Europe.

Kevin Hart is now Business Development Manager for Europe, The Middle East & Africa and is responsible for developing relationships with large golf accounts, including hotels & resorts. Club Car has identified this market as an important area to concentrate their efforts on in 2003.
