Tour Edge Golf announces the hiring of John Craig as Executive Vice President effective January 1, 2017. Craig’s remarkable experience in the golf business aims to strengthen Tour Edge’s position in the marketplace, and build upon a distinguished 30-year history.
“John is a significant addition to our Tour Edge team,” said David Glod, President and Founder. “His experience in the global golf market is an enormous asset for us moving forward and I am excited to have him on board to help elevate Tour Edge to the next level.”
“I have worked with David and the Tour Edge team for a number of years while in Australia, and am thrilled to be joining such a close-knit team,” said Craig. “This next chapter of my life aligns perfectly with a move to the United States, and Chicago specifically. My experience forecasts great things for the future of Tour Edge, and I cannot wait to help lead the charge.”
Craig has already partially moved into the role as Executive Vice President, working remotely from Australia, coordinating the sales and marketing strategies of the new Hot Launch 2 product line.
Before joining Tour Edge Golf Craig, born and raised in Australia, founded Cooperative Golf Services and developed it into the leading distributor of international brands to the Australian retail golf industry. In addition to his experience on the manufacturing and distribution side of the industry, Craig also brings considerable golf retail experience as well as having spent ten years outside of golf in strategic management consulting. Set to complete his MBA this December, Craig and his family are moving to the Chicago area this winter.
