Spencer Stuart is thrilled to be leading the search for a new Commissioner of the Ladies Professional Golf Association. The LPGA is one of the longest-running women's professional sports associations in the world. Founded in 1950, the organization has grown from its roots as a playing tour into a non-profit organization involved in every facet of golf. The LPGA has tremendous momentum, much of it a result of the current Commissioner who will be leaving after 11 terrific years.

The Commissioner serves as the face and voice of the LPGA and, in concert with Board direction, leads the organization in all strategic business and management functions. The mission for the next Commissioner will be to continue the growth and momentum the LPGA has achieved. Beyond that, the next leader will work closely with the Board and our key constituents to set the strategy and vision for the LPGA; maintain and build new relationships with external partners; launch new, innovative ways for fans to connect with the LPGA; and attract more interest and support for our mission to provide opportunities for women and young girls to achieve their dreams in golf.

The ideal candidate will be:

  • A proven General Manager or senior executive (i.e. CMO) with a track record of success from a related sports, consumer or media enterprise.
  • Someone who has crafted winning partnerships and worked with his/her team to achieve outstanding financial results.
  • Someone who has leveraged “modern” marketing – ideally on a global basis – to build a compelling and an enduring brand.
  • And of course, someone who brings to the LPGA a sincere authenticity and passion not only for the game of golf, but importantly, for their broader mission.
