Mark King
“CEO – TaylorMade/Adidas Golf”
Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Rock Barn Golf & Spa

With golf in the air, we will have as our guest speaker a man who has devoted his entire career (33 years) with the same organization. When he started with TaylorMade in 1980 it had only 3 employees. Today, as CEO during the past decade, he has overseen a steady surge in sales from $300 million to over $1.5 billion despite a frequently challenging economy and slow-growing industry. He was recently named by the Golf Industry as “Executive of the Year” and also one of the ten most powerful people in golf!
