The new president of Vancouver-based Miura Golf is no stranger to golf fans.
Adam Barr, former business reporter and writer with The Golf Channel, has been assigned the task of leading Miura’s global expansion, using his industry experience, relationships and communications expertise, as well as the business skills he developed as a lawyer.
Barr, 49, has worked in the golf industry since 1993, first as a freelance writer before joining Golfweek and later The Golf Channel, where he worked from 1997-2009 before becoming principal in his own website.
Prior to his golf journalism career, Barr was a practicing trial lawyer in Pittsburgh and Chicago and served as editor of tax and legal publications.
“Adam has had a unique career in the golf industry and has earned much respect and acclaim from his countless industry contacts. We’re confident his knowledge and experience will help expand Miura Golf’s exposure around the world,” says Bill Holowaty, executive vice president of product strategies.
“I can’t tell you how excited we are to have Adam on the Miura Golf team,” he added.
Barr says the move is the logical next step in a 17-year career.
“Working with the Miura family is a remarkable opportunity and I’m honored that it has come my way,” said Barr. “For me, this is the culmination of more than 17 years of work in the golf equipment industry.”
