Waltham, MA (October 16, 2017)—Tour Pro Tech, LLC today announced the appointment of Michael J. Collins as Chief Executive Officer. Michael is charged with building sales and brand recognition and bringing the company’s business with revolutionary golf training aid, PowerPlane®, to a new level. Michael brings 30+ years of experience in management, marketing and sales from across multiple industries including consumer goods, technology, online advertising and video broadcasting.
Michael has led sales teams for world class brands including Nike and Converse. His sales leadership has helped to launch successful new start-up businesses, including Adnetik.com, and Sponsorship Ad business for Experience.com, both online digital platforms. Michael comes to Tour Pro Tech direct from leading corporate sales development for VideoLink LLC, where he worked with some of the largest global brands including Ernst & Young, Nationwide and United Health Group. Michael’s humble beginnings included caddying at The Country Club in Brookline, MA, as a young man, where his lifetime passion and love for golf was ignited. He is a current member of Easton Country Club, Easton, MA.
“PowerPlane is the most effective training device in the industry for correcting incorrect swing position. I’ve yet to see another tool that compares in training the correct muscle memory of a swing,” said Collins. “I am very much looking forward to making this incredible tool mainstream. PowerPlane will help anyone lower their handicap in short order, and enjoy the game of golf with just a few minor adjustments that they can “train themselves” to make. The product is a real confidence booster, which helps with every aspect of the game,” Collins added.
The company will continue to be advised by a Board of Instructors, and guided by co-founder Tim Tierney, award-winning PGA Professional, and technology entrepreneur, Rich Kosowsky.
