PING adds two new UK Apparel Sales Agents

ping_logo_largePING has appointed two new Apparel Sales Agents to the UK Sales Team, headed up by European Apparel Sales Director, Giles Birkhead.

Commencing immediately, Douglas Pollock will cover Scotland and Scott Waterman will operate within the northern Home Counties of England.

“We’re thrilled to have added two very experienced sales agents to our growing roster in the UK,” said John Clark, MD of Ping Europe Ltd. “They fit perfectly into the PING team ethos and they could not be happier with the new direction for the PING apparel brand”.

Douglas Pollock has amassed 26 years’ experience in the golf trade, working across all facets of hardware, soft goods and apparel.

Similarly, Scott Waterman was a PGA Pro for 16 years, where his affinity and admiration of the PING brand began as a hardware customer.  He began selling PING apparel as a sub-agent in January 2013, but is now a full Sales Agent for the launch of the new 2015 Spring/Summer collection.

The appointments come after PING announced the acquisition of Ping Collection Europe Ltd from its former licensee in November 2013. The sell-in of the 2015 Spring/Summer collection will be the first fully directed, designed and driven by PING.
