Powerplay Golf strengthens its team

PowerPlay Golf (PPG), the tried and tested short form of golf, is pleased to announce an agreement with Y4 Media that brings two highly experienced additional members to its team.

Being designed as a televised professional sport, PPG recognised the need to strengthen its ability to work with programme makers and broadcasters.  Additionally, the means by which sports content is accessed has advanced significantly in recent years, with smart TVs and mobile devices increasingly the mediums of choice.

Y4 Media will advise and work with PPG in determining how content is produced and disseminated, as well as helping develop its advertising and sponsorship choices.

Joining the PPG team are Clare Bramley as Commercial Director of Broadcast and Carlene Marshall-King as Director of Production, their extensive careers are summarised below.

Ken Schofield, Chairman of PPG and former Executive Director of the European Tour, said: “We are delighted to have developed a strong relationship with Y4 Media and doubly so that two such experienced executives in Clare and Carlene are joining the PPG team.  It will mean that we continue our reinvigoration of PPG with still greater confidence”.
