Premier Licensing, one of the leading suppliers of golf and sports accessories in Europe, has announced a strengthened sales team to meet expected demand for a growing portfolio that now includes TravisMathew apparel and Evnroll putters.
Premier Licensing has announced the promotion of Ian Dudman, a PGA pro for over 30 years who has been with the company since 2008, to the role of key accounts manager, while Ben Harmer and Kieron Fitzpatrick have been added to the sales force to cover the South of England and Ireland/Scotland, respectively.
Dudman, who was head teaching pro at Boyce Hill in Essex for 22 years, brings a wealth of sales and marketing experience to his new role, while Harmer has been a fully qualified PGA professional in Sussex since July 2015, working first at Eastbourne’s very busy driving range, then as assistant pro at Seaford Golf Club for nearly six years.

We are confident that Ian, Ben and Kieron bring the necessary skills to their new roles to help us keep driving our business forwards.”
