Gary Ray has been appointed to the role of Business Development Manager, North America for Bernhard and Company.

Gary, who has been with the company for 9 years as Sales Manager – South Eastern USA, knows the US Golf industry well.  He said, “This is an exciting development for me and one that will bring with it new challenges in a market that is tougher than at any time in my experience.  However, I know and love this business, I have a lot of friends across the US, and I am looking forward to this new beginning.

“We are fortunate to be in such a close knit industry, where the emphasis is on trust, good service and excellent product.    We already have a very large percentage of the North American market – so let’s see where we can take this.”

Company Chairman, Stephen Bernhard said, “We know what Gary can bring to the role.  He has been in the turf industry for over 20 years and has been involved in tournament support at many of the high profile events such as the US Opens and PGA tour. No one knows more about the customer and their needs than Gary.  We have a great reputation in the market and Gary’s role will strengthen and develop that position.”

“Right now the challenge is to be focussed, to understand distribution and to extend that special support to the end user as well as to the distributor.” Gary said in conclusion.

Gary has lived in the Tampa, Florida area for over 25 years.
