Message from Our President: New Executive Director is Named
It gives me great pleasure to announce the new Executive Director of the WGAM—Cathleen Beach. Cathleen has been with us for the past year in the capacity of Administrative Assistant and in that time has diligently and enthusiastically learned the workings of our office and the administration of our tournaments Cathleen has golf in her blood. Her husband, Bob, has been the head professional at Braintree for many years and was recently ranked first in “Best Teachers in Your State” in MA by a vote of his pro peers. Her father, Ken Campbell, is a NEPGA Hall of Fame member, and two of her brothers are PGA professionals as well. Her life spent immersed in Massachusetts golf has given her a wealth of experience, friendships, and contacts in the industry. And her cheerful demeanor and can-do attitude make her a wonderful fit for this position. And as the face of the WGAM. The Board of the WGAM is unanimous in its support of Cathleen’s promotion to Executive Director.
