| March 4, 2013

In its continuing efforts to build and develop relationships with customers, industry associations and dealers, Jacobsen, a Textron (NYSE: TXT) Company, recently added to its dealer network and sales staff.

Jacobsen added two dealers to its global network: Marks Golf Cars will serve customers in Montana and Scott Turf will support customers in western Virginia and the eastern side of West Virginia.

Adam Smith is Jacobsen’s newest Territory Sales Manager, responsible for supporting dealers and U.S. customers in Missouri, southern Illinois, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota and Canadian customers in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Adam comes to Jacobsen with 15 years of experience in the golf industry, holding sales management positions at Rain Bird, Bernhard and Outdoor Equipment Company. 

Tony Grasso recently started as Territory Sales Manager, responsible for supporting dealers and customers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey and portions of New York. Tony comes to Jacobsen with 30 years of experience in the golf industry, with the majority of that time as a golf course superintendent at Metropolis Country Club and Willow Ridge Country Club, both in New York.

Joseph Foley was hired as Product Sales Demonstrator and will support dealers in West Virginia, Virginia, Delaware and Maryland on product demonstrations, field days, product road shows and other events. Joseph will be based in Lynchburg, Virgina. Joseph comes to Jacobsen from The Badin Inn and Golf Club in North Carolina, where he served as golf course superintendent. Joseph also served in the U.S. Army, completing tours of Iraq in 2003 and 2005. 

“Our strong 2012 proves that our strategy of building relationships is working,” said Ric Stone, Vice President of Sales for Jacobsen. “We are continuing our momentum into 2013 by further expanding our sales and support staff. Our service and support must be at the same high level of quality as our world-class equipment.”
