Troon Golf® has announced that it is further strengthening its Europe, Middle East & Africa team. Ian Bulleid joins as Sales & Marketing Director for EMEA and will be based in the UK.

With 26 years of experience in the golf industry, Ian joins with a fine pedigree and will add significant value to Troon Golf’s portfolio of EMEA clients.

“Ian’s addition to the team will give us a flexible, local resource to cater specifically to our EMEA clients. He has a wealth of practical experience and brings insights to brand positioning, marketing and business planning, enhancing all marketing aspects of our clients properties,” commented Bruce Glasco, MD Troon Golf, EMEA.

Ian has built his experience around a number of key positions with high profile companies, including Group Golf Manager for Whitbread looking after 14 courses under the Marriott Brand and Sports Manager at Gleneagles.

Most recently he has been Director of his own Golf Consultancy business where he consistently demonstrated an ability to give clear strategic direction and turn it into positive, practical solutions impacting on all areas of client’s business.

“Although I have a broad base of experience in the golf industry, I have always enjoyed working with quality properties of a similar nature to those in the Troon portfolio and am excited about bringing the benefits of my experience to bear alongside the considerable resources that Troon Golf offers its clients.”

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, Troon Golf EMEA is committed to developing Troon Golf’s presence in Europe, Middle East and Africa. This rapidly expanding division now oversees operations at 36 courses in 13 countries including Dubai, England, Portugal, Russia and Spain with further expansion planned across all regions.
