Greg Pearse has been appointed managing director of Galvin Green (UK & Ireland). Pearse was formerly marketing director for TaylorMade in Europe and had been with the Adidas group for the past 14 years. Pearse takes over his new role from Mike Johnson-Hill, who now becomes non-executive chairman of the UK company. Pearse, 37, is a twelve-handicap golfer who began playing as a junior at Wells GC in Somerset.
Galvin Green CEO/MD Christian Nilsson commented, “Greg has all the qualities that we were looking for in this very important position overseeing our biggest market. We believe he will make a big impression on our business and help move the brand even further forward.”
Pearse stated, “It’s a very exciting business to join as we’ve come a long way in a relatively short period of time and there are big plans across the globe. There are lots of opportunities for us in the coming years and with the market shifting to more innovative and technical fabrics, I see ourselves and the apparel market in total growing.
“Market research shows that our inventory percentage levels at retail are generally much lower than our sales – which highlights how well we are turning stock for our valued customers. Sell out and service is everything and we’re determined to excel on both whilst ensuring we maintain our premium and aspirational brand status.” More at: www.galvingreen.com
