Todd’s path into the golf business wasn’t as direct as one might believe. Throughout this path there were quite a few forks in the road that eventually circled back into the golf business. Todd started his golf career as an aspiring golfer looking to make it through the mini tours and into the big time. Needless to say, the competition was stout and prevented him from fulfilling this dream.
After his attempt at the PGA Tour, Todd began selling cars which allowed him to meet some interesting people and ended up landing a job with a consulting firm. After that, Todd worked on the Mechanicsburg, Pa Naval supply depot for almost two years before the opportunity presented itself to get back into the golf industry.
This opportunity was to begin working on a new golf management company, Brown Golf Management. Taking a leap of faith, Todd and John began this new business as a startup in a basement in 2011 with no properties. By the end of the 1st year, Brown Golf had secured 3 properties and were on their way out of the basement. Now, Brown Golf is inside the 25 worldwide for Golf Management companies.
Todd stated, “I know that we have great people in our organization and without their tireless efforts we were just two guys in a basement throwing a football on our lunch break. Having a family (Wife 3 kids & a dog) & creating this business have been more rewarding for me than chasing golf tournament titles ever was.”
Currently, Todd is an owner and Executive VP of Brown Golf, focusing on developing new business relationships and bringing great value and experience to their customers and employees.
