The former president of turf equipment manufacturer Jacobsen, David Withers, has joined Golf Business International following his move back to the United Kingdom.
Withers now works as an independent consultant following his six-year tenure as president and CEO of Jacobsen, and is looking to utilize his business development skills to assist golf clubs in an increasingly competitive market.
The Atlanta-based Golf Business International, formed as the Golf Consultants Association in 1999, is a consulting firm that has the ability to form a team of highly-respected and experienced golf industry professionals to see any phase of a project through from conception to end, according to the company.
"Having spent many years working in the industry, I know several of the existing members of Golf Business International personally and taking membership seemed the obvious thing to do," says Withers. "I can see great value in individuals with distinct skill sets working together for the betterment of the industry and I look forward to being an active member for many years to come."
Withers offers extensive international expertise in Europe, Asia and the Americas, and, using his communication and relationship-building skills, he is capable of forming strong connections between company and customers, according to a press release.
Howard Swan, chairman of Golf Business International - which recently rebranded from its original name of the Golf Consultants Association - adds: "David is a vastly experienced individual and brings with him many years' knowledge of various sectors of our industry. I know he will be a tremendous asset to Golf Business International."
