Alan B. Clark named Chief Operating Officer on heels of FeedbacK's success at 2014 PGA Worldwide Merchandise Show
February 28, 2014 (Newswire) - FeedbacK™ proudly welcomes industry expert and respected financial executive Alan B. Clark to the leadership team. As COO, Clark will focus on strategic opportunities in capital development, product distribution, as well as product and market growth. Clark will also support research and development plans by securing investors.
With over three decades as a PGA Professional and businessman, Clark is recognized for his course management acumen, customer growth and retention abilities, as well as his overall management skills. Clark's success in these areas reflects his personal commitment to fiscal and strategic planning.
Clark has previously held the positions of Director of Golf, Vice-President, Director of Operations, and most recently, Director of Revenue, at some of St. Louis' premier clubs. Of those, four facilities and five courses ranked #1 in the state of Missouri by Golf Digest. Clark holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Park College, Parkville, MO, and was a member of the Gateway PGA Section Board of Directors from 1996 until 2004.
"With his decades of success in the golf industry, Alan was a natural choice for Chief Operating Officer," says FeedbacK President and Founder, Shawn McDonald. "Alan exudes a calm yet undeniable confidence and a personality that immediately sets you at ease - a perfect negotiating combination as we move FeedbacK forward in 2014 through product distribution and expansion."
Clark was introduced to the company by FeedbacK Director of Instruction, Jamie Conners, who has remained a friend and a professional colleague of Clark's for more than thirty years. Clark's fervent interest in FeedbacK's business model, team and product is what drove him to the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando to meet Shawn McDonald and personally gauge the product's reception by industry professionals. From that moment, the opportunity for a strong and successful collaboration became apparent.
With the success from this year's PGA Merchandise Show, FeedbacK is looking forward to expanding its team to meet increased interest and demand from customers and media. FeedbacK will continue to uphold and build its reputation within the industry as the premiere provider of Golf Training Solutions for the self-learner, the student and the instructor.
