Sports fanatic Gavin Jobe is swinging his way to success as he becomes director of a store.
The 35-year-old, from Killingworth, is looking forward to his new role at the Golf Bunker store in Royal Quays Outlet Centre, North Shields.
He has a great affinity for the sport and comes with a wealth of sales and business experience to help build on the success of the store.
Gavin said: “My interest in golf came through my father and I have enjoyed the sport as a hobby from a very young age. So much so, that I still play at an amateur level as Captain of Parklands Golf Club in Gosforth.
“I have 12 years worth of sales and management experience in sports retail under my belt. For me, the next level was to take this experience and move forward as owner of my own store.
“Having settled in well over the last couple of weeks, I am expecting a busy summer as we look forward to introducing a range of new products.
“My aim is to make the Golf Bunker a top class store for people who are looking for the very best products at the right price.
“Royal Quays is a great venue, it is accessible and convenient for customers and I am looking forward to driving the store forward in the months ahead.”
The Golf Bunker specialises in a wide range of golf equipment including golf clubs, clothing, shoes, bags, and balls.
Royal Quays centre manager Judith Ramshaw said: “Gavin has settled in well to life at the centre and has a real get-up-and-go attitude that will help to ensure the store will go from success to success. It is great to see his passion and determination shining through.”
