A new face will be treading in the golf shoes at Danish company ECCO, after Jackie Kirkwood took on the role of Sales Manager, East, for the USA Golf Division.
Golf veteran Jackie has worked for several golf clothing and golf shoe retailers previously, so she is well aware of the challenges faced in the area, World Golf reported.
In her new role she will support key accounts and oversee the company's independent sales force to encourage growth for golf shoes, including the Golf Street and BIOM models.
David Helter, ECCO USA speciality sales director, told World Golf: "We selected Jackie from a tremendously talented pool of candidates based on her impressive track record and extensive connections throughout the golf retail sector."
International players wearing ECCO golf shoes include Fred Couples, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn, Aaron Baddeley, Stuart Appleby, Thongchai Jaidee, Jennifer Johnson, Gerina Piller, and many others.
Tiger Woods has also been known to wear ECCO products.
