Golfdom Announces Multiple Promotions and New Staff Additions

Golfdom StaffCleveland, OH — December 8, 2017 — Golfdom, a North Coast Media (NCM) brand serving the golf course maintenance industry, is pleased to announce the promotions of Craig MacGregor to Publisher, Seth Jones to Associate Publisher, Chloe Scoular to Account Manager, and the addition of Dan Hannan to Eastern Regional Sales Manager. Jake Goodman, who was recently promoted to Western Regional Sales Manager, remains in that role.

These moves were made necessary thanks to the fast growth over the past five years of Golfdom’s print and digital products and the overwhelming success of its hosted event, the Golfdom Summit, held last week at the Reunion Resort outside of Orlando, Fla.

“We are currently celebrating the Golfdom brand’s 90-year history,” said Kevin Stoltman, President and CEO of North Coast Media. “In addition to celebrating the brand, it is time to celebrate and announce some well-deserved promotions and additions to the Golfdom staff. We are gearing up for the best years yet for Golfdom readers and marketing partners.”

Craig MacGregor joined Golfdom and sister publication Landscape Management (LM) in January 2012. He was promoted to Associate Publisher of both in 2015 and continued to excel in growing his clients’ businesses through strong partnerships and new innovations, including NCM’s first Facebook Live event at this year’s GIE+EXPO. Craig has played an integral role in the record growth the past five years of the LM and Golfdom brands. In addition to his new Publisher role with Golfdom, he will remain Associate Publisher of LM.

Seth Jones joined Golfdom as Editor-in-Chief in December 2010 after working as an editor on Golf Course Management magazine for 12 years. In his seven years with Golfdom, his editorial vision has helped Golfdom lead the industry in readership and awards. In 2015 the Turf & Ornamental Communicators Association (TOCA) named Seth best columnist in the industry; In 2016 the magazine’s 16 TOCA awards were as many as all their competitors combined. Already instrumental in the success of the Golfdom Summit and collaborating with the Golfdom sales team on industry partner marketing initiatives, Seth will fit into the role of Associate Publisher seamlessly. He also will remain Golfdom’s Editor-in-Chief.

Dan Hannan joins the company with more than 20 years of sales and marketing experience. He’ll utilize his experience to manage the Eastern Region for both the Golfdom and LM brands. Dan will help his customers develop marketing and branding solutions to strengthen their positions in the golf course maintenance and landscaping and lawn care industries.

Chloe Scoular, NCM’s Buyers Guide Account Manager since 2014, has excelled in customer relations and growing classified and buyers guide products. In her new role as Account Manager, she will dedicate her efforts to introducing Golfdom and LM marketing opportunities to new partners.

“The Golfdom sales team is energized and ready to take Golfdom to the next level,” added Bill Roddy, Group Publisher of Golfdom and LM. “We are already busy brainstorming new ideas to help our customers grow. It’s a very exciting time for both the Golfdom and Landscape Management brands.”
