The Golf Foundation has welcomed our Chairman and co-owner Kim Wild onto its Board of Trustees.
The Golf Foundation welcomed Kim, along with Economist and researcher Davinder Jhamat, digital marketing expert Jim Brigden, and media and technology entrepreneur Sanjit Atwal to their first Board meeting on December 10.
They will all be helping the Golf Foundation to develop innovative, digital and inclusive strategies in the years ahead.
For those of you who don't know, Kim Wild has worked in media for the past 30 years, formerly with Emap plc before taking up the reigns at Women & Golf. As well as working with the leading media brand in the women’s game, she was also Chairman of Enfield GC for six years where she also supported the development of its successful junior section.
She is a long-term friend of the Golf Foundation, and she's also helped organise fundraising events for the charity in the past.
We're sure you'll agree that she's the perfect person for the job.
Golf Foundation Chairman Stephen Lewis said: “Our Golf Foundation team is delighted to welcome four really outstanding new Trustees to join our Board. As Chairman, I am proud of the creativity, enthusiasm and support our Board has shown the Golf Foundation’s committed staff in recent times, giving them the confidence to excel as a team in helping many more youngsters to Start, Learn and Stay in the game.
“However, we must never stand still and we recognise that as sport, business and technology are all developing quickly, as is the society around us, it is now great to bring in trusted individuals with new skills, business experience and fresh ideas; who are all passionate in helping us to grow the game, make it better and more inclusive for the good of all young people. I’m very confident that Kim, Sanjit, Jim and Davinder are a wonderful fit for the values of our charity and they will be a great asset to the Golf Foundation as we seek to inspire a new generation of young players.”
Now, we might be biased, but we couldn't agree more.
The Golf Foundation currently operates a number of successful initiatives for young people in schools, communities and golf clubs. However, looking ahead, the charity’s team is eager to reach and inspire a greater number of youngsters from more diverse backgrounds, working with its partners to bring the considerable benefits of golf to more families who have not yet enjoyed golf as a realistic sporting option.
