Sales, Membership and Marketing Manager
The Management Board of Stoke Rochford Golf Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Cullington to the newly created position of Sales, Membership and Marketing Manager (part-Time) for the Golf Club
Steve was selected from an initial list of 33 applicants, 7 of whom were subsequently interviewed by members of the Board. Although there was strong competition for the position, Steve was the Board’s unanimous choice.
As a Past Captain of Stoke Rochford, with more than 10 years of service on the Management Committee, and having held, at various times, the positions of Handicap and Competitions Chairman and Fixtures Secretary, Steve brings a wealth of experience to the post, as well as a strong respect for the traditions of the Club.
Steve has been instrumental recently in upgrading a number of systems for the Club for the collection, management and utilisation of the considerable amount of data which the Club holds on its members, visitors and societies, and it is hoped that this can be used to drive forward the objectives of improving membership information, attracting new members, and promoting the Club within the wider golfing community.
Steve takes up his position on 1st May 2017, and I am sure that, on behalf of the Club, all the members, as well as members of the Management Board, wish him every success in this new initiative to further improve the prospects for Stoke Rochford Golf Club for the foreseeable future.
