Roland Deveau, president of Golf Canada, says no decision has been made on who will replace the departing Scott Simmons as CEO, but he suggests the appointment won’t happen immediately.
“We want to build on the foundation that Scott’s left us. We have a strategic plan that we’re confident in that Scott’s helped develop for us,” said Deveau.
“In terms of who we’re looking for right now, we’re not going to limit the scope of who we’re going to look for right now,” he added.
“We live in a different environment now than perhaps 10 years ago. The digital world now, social media, even the sponsorship environment is a lot different, so we’re going to consider all our options, whether it’s external or internal,” said Deveau.
“We just want to look at what’s out there and we’re going to make sure we take our time to make that decision,” he said.
