Reporting to Rupert Price, Sales Manager UK and Ireland, he will be responsible for golf car sales and territory development in the south of England and Wales.

Chris joins the E-Z-GO team following a 13 year career with a family-owned distributor of power tools based at Christchurch in Dorset. Initially he was Sales Manager with responsibility for the company's showroom operation and major grounds care franchises. In 2002 he added the responsibility for sales of a rival golf car manufacturer as the franchise development manager for five counties in the southwest of England.

Commenting on the appointment, Rupert Price said, "We are delighted to welcome Chris to the business. He comes with a wealth of experience in the golf car sector and his sales and technical knowledge will prove to be a positive asset, going forward."

Chris lives in Christchurch with his wife, Katherine and two children, Chloe and Oliver. His spare time is devoted to his family apart from visits to the golf course, where he is trying to reduce his handicap from its current level of 15 down to single figures. His father, Mike, is Head Greenkeeper at Highcliffe Castle Golf Club.
